FAMU’s McCullum tabbed MEAC Coach of the Year

Florida A&M head basketball coach, Robert McCullum, has been named the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Coach of the Year, the conference announced on Friday afternoon. McCullum is the first FAMU head basketball coach to earn the award in the 50-year history of the honor.
The Rattlers also had two players earn All-MEAC recognition. Junior forward MJ Randolph landed on the All-MEAC First-Team and All-Defensive team, while Jalen Speer earned a spot on the All-Rookie team.
McCullum, who took over the FAMU program in 2017, led to Rattlers to its third consecutive winning conference record going 7-5, earning the No. 2 seed in the 2021 MEAC Basketball Tournament. In his career at FAMU, McCullum has accumulated 33-27 MEAC record. He also led FAMU to an overall record of 8-11.
Under McCullum’s guidance this season, the Rattlers have become one of the best defensive teams in the MEAC. As a team, FAMU leads the conference in scoring defense, as the only team to give up less than 70 points per game (67.5), and defensive rebounds per game (35.5).
