Yesterday, I reported that Jim Ferry’s new staff at UMBC would include former Albany assistant Josh Pelletier and Akron video coordinator Evann Baker. I can now confirm that Emmanuel College head coach Danny Lawson will round out the staff, and be named as an assistant coach.
Lawson had been the head coach at Emmanuel since 2018, where he went 38-15 during his tenure. He was tabbed as the 2019 D3Hoops.com Northeast Region Coach of the Year following his first season. His team won the only game that they played this year during the COVID shortened season.
Prior to taking over at Emmanuel, Lawson had worked for Ferry at the D1 level at both Duquesne and LIU.
An official announcement is expected shortly.
