Ep. 25: Tom Pritchard

On this week’s episode of the Vigilant Sports Pacers Podcast, I’m joined by a familiar name in Central Indiana Sports: Tom Pritchard.

Pritchard worked for the Pacers from 2013-16.

Pritchard worked for the Pacers from 2013-16.

Pritchard played basketball at Indiana University from 2008-12. He was not only part of that special game where IU knocked off No. 1 and previously unbeaten Kentucky at Assembly Hall, but he was also one of the original recruits in 2008 who remained committed despite a coaching change.

Oh, and his put-back jam on Minnesota is one for the highlight reel.

After playing in Bloomington, Pritchard joined the Pacers in the consumer sales department. In May, after three years of ticket sales, he made the decision to leave that job to pursue a job back on the court … in coaching.
