STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) -Georgia Tech assistant Charlton Young, a former Georgia Southern basketball star, has been hired to lead his alma mater.
Young was introduced Thursday during a news conference on the Georgia Southern campus. He replaces Jeff Price, who resigned on March 30 after 10 seasons.
Young spent the past four years at Georgia Tech after stints at Jacksonville, Northeastern, Tennessee-Chattanooga and two separate stops at Auburn.
He starred for the Eagles from 1989-93, starting 97 straight games over three years at point guard. He averaged 14.8 points and 4.9 assists over that span, and helped the program to its most recent appearance in the NCAA tournament.
Young played professionally in Europe before finishing his degree and beginning his coaching career.
