San Diego State is restructuring it’s men’s basketball staff in light of the awful recent news that assistant coach Mark Fisher — the son of head coach Steve Fisher — has been diagnosed with ALS.
The 34-year-old Mark Fisher has been with the Aztecs for 12 seasons — the last six as an assistant coach — and he’ll be remaining with his father’s staff as an assistant to the head coach according to a release from the school.
Filling Fisher’s assistant coach spot will be David Velasquez, who has served as San Diego State’s director of player development the past six seasons after spending time as a manager for the Aztecs from 2002 through 2007.
This is certainly some very sad news heading into the new season and we wish the Fisher family the best during this difficult time.
