Andre LaFleur was named the associate head coach of the Providence men's basketball team on April 18, 2011.
LaFleur came to Providence after spending 10 seasons at the University of Connecticut during the most successful era in Husky basketball history. At UConn, he helped the Huskies capture two national championships (2004 and 2011) and record a 258-88 mark (.764). The team also went to a Sweet 16 and an Elite 8. LaFleur arrived at UConn in 2001 and spent three seasons as the team's first ever director of basketball operations on Head Coach Jim Calhoun's staff. In 2005, he was promoted to assistant coach for the Huskies. LaFleur was promoted again in 2006 when he was named the team's recruiting coordinator. During his five years in the position, the squad reached the post season four times. LaFleur was instrumental in recruiting two of the greatest Huskies ever in Hasheem Thabeet, the 2009 Big East Player of the Year, the 2009 National Defensive Player of the Year and the No. 2 pick in the 2009 NBA draft, as well as, Kemba Walker, the No. 9 selection in the 2011 NBA draft.
As a standout point guard in college, LaFleur played for Calhoun at Northeastern University. He helped Northeastern reach the NCAA tournament in each of his four years. During his four years at Northeastern, the Huskies registered a 102-26 mark, including an ECAC North Atlantic conference record of 60-6. LaFleur became the all-time NCAA Division 1 assist leader in 1987 (894 assists). Following his senior season when he graduated with a bachelor's degree in economics, he was drafted by the Houston Rockets of the NBA. LaFleur played and coached professionally overseas for 11 seasons.
A native of Los Angeles, Calif., LaFleur and his wife Alana have two sons, Adrian and Adonis.
