New East Central University men’s head basketball coach Joe Redmond has announced Charles Terry will join his staff as the team’s top assistant for the 2010-11 season.
Terry most recently served as head basketball coach at Lincoln (Mo.) for six years.
Prior to that, he spent three years as the head coach at Oklahoma Panhandle State University in Goodwell.
Terry also had assistant coaching stops at Fayetteville High School (Arkansas), Little Rock McClellan High School (Arkansas), University of the Ozarks (Arkansas) and Drury (Missouri).
He is a 1972 graduate of Emporia High School (Kansas) and was a junior college All-American at Hutchinson Community College (Kansas) where he played for the legendary Gene Keady.
After his two-year stint at Hutchinson, Terry played two seasons for another legend, coach Eddie Sutton, at the University of Arkansas.
Terry was a two-time All-Southwest Conference selection for the Razorbacks.
“Coach Terry brings a wealth of experience,” said Redmond.
“We’re lucky to have someone of his caliber on our staff. We look forward to working with him.”
