SU roundup: Corbin resigns as men’s basketball assistant coach
Daily Staff Reports – firstname.lastname@example.org
WINCHESTER — Shenandoah University head men’s basketball coach Rob Pryor announced Friday that lead assistant Allen Corbin has resigned his position.
Corbin, who has been Pryor’s top assistant since the latter took over as head coach for the 2011-12 season, is leaving to become a coach at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
Corbin was the lead recruiter for the Hornets in the past three seasons, a time frame in which the roster doubled in size.
SU expects 23 players at the first day of practice on Oct. 15.
“I want to thank Allen for everything he has done for the program in the past three years,” Pryor stated in a news release. “He did an outstanding job in all aspects of the job — not just on-the-floor coaching, but recruiting and the administrative tasks as well.
“I wish him well in his new position. This is a great move for Allen and his family.”
Pryor added that a national search will be conducted for Corbin’s replacement and he hopes to fill the position as soon as possible.
Shenandoah opens its 2014-15 season on Nov. 15 versus Cazenovia (N.Y.) in the opening round of the BB&T Tip-Off Classic.
WINCHESTER — Shenandoah head men’s and women’s golf coach Scott Singhass announced the recruiting classes for both of his programs Friday afternoon.
Singhass, starting his ninth year as the head men’s coach and the first as the head coach of the new women’s program, is bringing in a total of four student-athletes into the two programs.
Brett Dubin, from Beachwood, Ohio, and Michael Plath, from Newton, New Jersey, are slated to compete for the men’s team while Sara Eadie is the first-ever student-athlete in the women’s program.
Cory Claytor, a Handley graduate, rounds out the men’s recruits as he enters SU as a transfer student.
“All four of our recruits are strong students who are ready to take the next step in their golf playing careers,” Singhass stated in a news release. “They are all hard workers who know what it takes to succeed at this level. I can’t wait to get started working with them.”
Both programs open their fall seasons on Sept. 13, the men at the Kinder Memorial hosted by Bridgewater College and the women at the Dickinson Invitational.
