Jerry Stackhouse to be named Vanderbilt head coach

Jerry Stackhouse

Jerry Stackhouse has made a name for himself as an assistant coach in the NBA and head coach in the G League over the past several years, and he will now have a chance to leave his mark on the NCAA.

According to numerous reports, Stackhouse has agreed to a deal with Vanderbilt to become the team’s next head coach.

Stackhouse, a former No. 3 overall pick who played in the NBA from 1995-2013, was named the G League Coach of the Year with the Raptors 905 in 2017. He is highly regarded in NBA coaching circles and interviewed for one head coaching job in the league last year. His goal is likely still to become a head coach in the NBA, and Vanderbilt should provide him with a nice stepping stone.

Vanderbilt fired former head coach Bryce Drew last month following a disastrous 9-23 season and second consecutive year missing the NCAA Tournament.
