JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Jackson State has hired Wayne Brent to be its men's basketball coach.
The 45-year-old Brent is an accomplished high school coach, winning four state championships in six seasons with Callaway High School in Jackson. He was also an assistant coach at Mississippi for four seasons in the late 1990s and early 2000s, helping the Rebels advance to the NCAA tournament three times.
Brent was introduced on Monday, and will have a strong nucleus to work with next season, including guards Dundrecous Nelson (Ole Miss) and Julysses Nobles (Arkansas), who will both be eligible after transferring from the Southeastern Conference. He'll also have several returning players from last year's team that finished with an 11-18 record.
Brent takes over for Tevester Anderson, who retired after 10 seasons leading the Tigers.
