Rodney Terry Named Fresno State Head Basketball Coach

Longhorn assistant coach Rodney Terry is now former Longhorn assistant Rodney Terry after accepting the Fresno State head basketball coaching position early on Thursday, according to multiple reports. 

One of two finalists for the job, along with Ohio State assistant Jeff Boals, after spending nine years working under Rick Barnes at Texas, Terry will take over for Steve Cleveland, who was reassigned March 17th after four straight losing seasons. Terry was also an assistant at Baylor and North Carolina-Wilmington before his time at Texas and played college basketball in Austin at St. Edward's University.

An Angleton native and the point man for the recruitments of the four Canadians at or committed to Texas, Terry was a major factor in starting the Canadian pipeline to Austin that has been so beneficial for the Longhorns and will continue to be beneficial when Myck Kabongo and Kevin Thomas arrive on campus this fall.

Terry is now the fifth Texas assistant under Rick Barnes to earn a head coaching job, joining Ricky Stokes (Virginia Tech), Rob Lanier (Siena), Frank Haith (Miami), and Ken McDonald (Western Kentucky).
