Armstrong State University head men’s basketball coach Evans Davis has announced the elevation of Zach Corliss to assistant coach for the upcoming 2015-16 season.
Corliss served as a graduate assistant coach for the Pirates each of the last two seasons while pursuing his master’s degree in adult education from Armstrong State University. The Fletcher, N.C., native has been a part of the Armstrong basketball program since he was a freshman on the 2008-09 team that advanced to the NCAA Championships.
Corliss graduated with his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Armstrong in 2012. The former standout at West Henderson HS replaces Jeremy Mayweather, who resigned from his assistant coach position to take another coaching position last month.
“I’m delighted that Zach will remain with the Pirate basketball program,” Davis said. “As a former player who battled with injuries his entire career, I’m sure this is exciting for him and his family. I know he bleeds maroon and gold and believe he will continue to do a great job.
“Zach has been with me from the beginning, so it is only fitting that we continue the mission of rebuilding this program the right way,” Davis added.
Corliss will serve as the assistant coach for the 2015-16 season, then a national search for an assistant coach will take place in 2016.
