Presbyterian hiring alum Quinton Ferrell as next head coach
Presbyterian announced Thursday the hiring of College of Charleston assistant and PC alum Quinton Ferrell as the next head men’s basketball coach. This is the first head coaching opportunity for Ferrell, who graduated from PC in 2007 and has been coaching ever since.
“[Ferrell] has been crucial in the success of several programs he has worked with over the last several years and is a tireless worker and recruiter,” AD Danny Sterling said in a release. “Coach Ferrell loves PC and this program, and will recruit and develop student-athletes who will represent Presbyterian with integrity on and off the court. We are excited to welcome him and his family back to the Clinton community and PC.”
Former Blue Hose head coach Dustin Kerns left last month to take over at Appalachian State. Ferrell inherits a roster that should include most of the same guys that played in the CIT last month, the first ever D-I postseason appearance for the program. With a freshman leading scorer in Adam Flagler and only two of the top seven rotation players (by mpg) departing, Ferrell should be able to hit the ground running.
“I look forward to continuing to move the basketball program forward and building a championship level program both on and off the court,” Ferrell said. “This is a very exciting time for my family, and we can’t wait to get out in the community to build relationships and make an impact!”
In addition to spending the last five years on Earl Grant‘s staff in Charleston, Ferrell has been an assistant at Army, The Citadel and for five years at PC under his former coach Gregg Nibert.
