FAMU’s McCullum receives contract extension

Florida A&M Vice President and Director of Athletics Kortne Gosha announced contract extensions for head football coach Willie Simmons, head men’s basketball coach Robert McCullum and head women’s basketball coach Shalon Pillow after Board of Trustees approval.

“The past year has been filled with uncertainly and our coaches have demonstrated the highest levels of leadership and stability as we lead our programs into the Southwestern Athletic Conference,” said Gosha. “We are excited about trajectory of our programs and it was important that we maintained elite coaches to ensured that continuity. I am grateful to President Robinson, Board of Trustees, and Foundation Board for their unwavering support.”

McCullum has ushered in a new era of success for FAMU men’s basketball since joining the program in 2017. He led the Rattlers back to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Tournament during the 2020-21 season and was named the MEAC’s Men’s Basketball Coach of the Year, the first time a coach from FAMU earned the honor in the 50-year history of the conference. 

McCullum earned a three-year extension, which runs through 2024.
