Fred T Foard announced on Friday that former Tiger Nolan Whitener will be the school’s new men’s varsity basketball coach. Whitener, an assistant coach last season is a 2015 Foard graduate.
He averaged 17.5 points per game and pulled down 6.5 rebound his senior season. He went on to play at Catawba Valley Community College for two years before finishing his collegiate career at Pfeiffer University.
Whitener replaces Andy Hodges who stepped down in May after going 6-19. The last time the Tigers had a winning season was in fact that 2015 team led by Whitener, when they went 16-8.
