Patrick Beilein is an American college basketball coach who recently served as men’s basketball head coach at Niagara University. Being the eldest son of former college basketball coach John Beilein, Patrick followed his father’s footsteps into the game. He was previously the head coach at Le Moyne College for four years before making his move to Niagara.
Patrick has been involved with basketball all his life. From playing under his father to coaching in the NBA as an assistant, he has shined through everything. One thing that Patrick shines as much as basketball is as a father. He is married and has two children with his wife. One of the children is Patrick Beilein’s son Thomas Patrick Beilein, so let’s go through some interesting facts about him.
Son Of Patrick With Wife Kristen Beilein
Patrick Beilein’s son Thomas was born in March 2018 to him and his wife, Kristen Beilein. The couple had married prior to that year and had met in 2014. Thomas, being their first son, sparked a different joy in the family. Kristen was overwhelmed by happiness and thrilled by what was to come. Patrick was feeling so miraculously joyous that he could not stop smiling.
Thomas brought a blessing to the family after his birth. Currently, the two-year-old spends most of his time in his mother’s arms while his father remains pretty busy with his tight basketball schedule. Thomas even resigned from his job at Niagara University for his family, which speaks for itself that nothing is more important for him except his family.
Patrick Beilein’s Son Thomas Has A Litlle Brother
Thomas became a big brother after James Beilein made his way into the family. Although the date of birth of James has not been revealed yet, it must be somewhere in 2019. Both of the siblings are adored by their parents and spend a lot of time with them. Thomas has also gotten a friend in little brother, which makes it lively for him to grow up.
James and Thomas are pretty lucky that they are getting such lovely parents in the form of Patrick and Kristen. Let’s hope these two siblings will share the same love and passion for each other throughout their life.
Thomas’s Mom Kristen Is Also A Coach
Thomas Beilein’s mom Kristen is also a coach like his father. She used to coach lacrosse to a local high school team before taking a break during pregnancy. Coming from an athletic background and following in her mother, Kathy Taylor’s footsteps, who is the coach of Le Moyne women’s lacrosse team, it was quite easy for her to adapt to the coaching culture.
Apart from coaching, Thomas’s mother Kristen also used to work in the fields like brand marketing and merchandising. She worked for the Montrag group as a business strategist. Moreover, she had a job at Under Armour and Nike at its world headquarters in Oregon. Kristen is truly a multidimensional human while being engaged in multiple careers; she is also a mother.
