Following-up on the D2 DIRT that I published earlier today. D2 Fort Valley State University has now issued an official statement regarding their men’s basketball coaching change:
Fort Valley State University has decided to part ways with basketball head coach Mark Sherrill.
Athletic director Dr. Anthony Holloman says it was time to move in a different direction with the basketball program.
Once the season concludes, the athletic department will conduct a nationwide search to find the next head coach.
The University is committed to providing its student-athletes with the best opportunities to succeed and to building championship-caliber teams at Fort Valley State.
Sherrill took over at FVSU back in 2018. In his three+ seasons at the helm, the Wildcats went 15-56 (.211), including a 1-9 mark so far this year. Prior to his time at FVSU, Sherrill spent over 20 years as an assistant at his alma mater Johnson C. Smith University, where is is also the all-time leading scorer (2,552 points).
