Shingles added to CSUN Basketball Staff

CSUN head men’s basketball coach Andy Newman has announced the hiring of Brandon Shingles as an assistant coach to the Matadors in 2023-24.

“Brandon’s had an incredible playing career and he takes that same fearless attitude that he had as a player and applies it into his coaching profession,” said Newman. “He’s had a ton of early success as a coach and we expect him to experience the same here, both in teaching the game of basketball and recruiting quality young men to our program.”

Shingles brings to CSUN coaching experience spent in the Ohio Valley and Southland Conferences as well as at the junior college ranks. He spent last season as an assistant coach at Lindenwood University while he previously served as an assistant at McNeese State for the 2022-23 season.

Prior to McNeese, Shingles spent two seasons as assistant coach at Chipola College in Marianna, Fla. where he served as the program’s recruiting coordinator, defensive coordinator and director of scouting. With Shingles on the sidelines, Chipola ranked among the top defensive teams in the nation while the Indians won back-to-back conference and state championships and made a pair of final four appearances in the NJCAA National Tournament. Shingles would help 11 different players transition to the NCAA Division I level including three to Power Five programs. In all, Shingles coached two NJCAA All-Americans and eight All-Conference players in his two seasons.

As a player, Shingles spent his first two collegiate seasons at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) in Tifton, Ga. He led the Stallions to an all-time school best 27-5 record and was a first-team all-conference selection.

A graduate of Morehead State, Shingles was a two-year starter with the Eagles from 2008-10. He would end his collegiate career ranked in the school’s all-time top 10 list in assists while he helped guide the program to the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament championship. Shingles played in the 2009 NCAA Tournament with Morehead State, helping the Eagles post an opening round victory.

Following college, Shingles played nine professional seasons overseas for teams in Germany, England and Spain. Shingles earned all-league honorable mention in 2016 and was an all-star in 2010 and 2011.
