Tusculum names head coach

Tusculum College has named Michael Jones as its new men’s basketball coach. Jones comes to Tusculum after serving the last 12 years as head coach at South Atlantic Conference member Brevard College. Jones replaces former Tusculum coach Jim Boone, who resigned last week after six seasons on the TC sidelines to accept a similar position at West Virginia Wesleyan College.

The Maysville, Ky. native has amassed 214 victories in his 14 years as a collegiate head coach, including 175 in his 12 seasons at Brevard. Jones has led his programs to three national tournaments, including two with the Tornados.

Coach Jones will be introduced to the College and Greeneville communities at a press conference Wednesday afternoon at 1 p.m.
