Athletic Director Daniel Prevett will take over as head coach of the men’s basketball program for Brewton-Parker College.
He served as Athletic Director and head coach for women’s basketball during his first year before being promoted to Vice President of Athletics and Student Development in July 2016.
In his one season at the helm of Tennesse Temple University’s storied men’s basketball program, Prevett reestablished the culture of integrity and took a team with 1 returning starter and 10 true freshmen to a 8-19 record including a win over then #2 USCAA ranked Berea College. Prevett coached one NCCAA DI All-American and two USCAA DI All-Americans including a 2,500 point scorer.
Coach Prevett served six seasons under Coach Will Shouse at Asbury where he helped lead the Eagles to a 105-79 record, three 20-win seasons and a Regular Season KIAC Championship in 2011. Prevett was responsible for the Junior Varsity program where he led his team to an undefeated season in 2014.
Daniel played four years at Kentucky Christian University where he received his Business Administration degree in 2007. As a player for the Knights, Prevett was a member of two NCCAA Division II final four teams, one that finished fourth in 2005 and one that finished third in 2007. Prevett was a two year starter at KCU and a team captain during his final season.
A native of Louisville, KY, Coach Prevett received his Master of Sports Science in Sports Management from the United States Sports Academy in 2014.
“We appreciate Coach Chapman’s time here at BPC. He did a great job both on and off the court in developing his team members academically and spiritually. We wish him well in his new position. We are grateful to have our Vice President for Athletics and Student Development , Daniel Prevett, take over the reigns of our men’s basketball program. Others in the athletic and student development departments will be taking on additional responsibilities to free him to be able to fill this new role. Like everything he does, we know Coach Prevett will do an outstanding job as head coach of the BPC men’s basketball team,” says BPC President Steve Echols.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to continue to build on what Coach Chapman started with this program. Seeing the interest in this position is affirmation for how special this program is. We feel that continuity was important in this decision with a team that has so much experience. This move would not be possible without the help of my support staffs in both athletics and student development. A special thanks to Dr. Echols for trusting in me to lead this program and providing me with the opportunity to get back to the game I love,” states Coach Prevett.
Daniel, his wife Jenni, and their children Jordon (5) and Abilene (2) live in Mount Vernon.
