TYNDALL FORMALLY ANNOUNCES BASKETBALL STAFF

Tennessee basketball coach Donnie Tyndall formally announced his full-time coaching staff Wednesday.

 

Al Pinkins, Adam Howard and Chris Shumate have been named assistant coaches. Jareem Dowling will serve as director of player development, and Justin Phelps is the director of basketball operations.

 

Tyndall also hired Todd Moyer as the program’s strength and conditioning coach.

 

Dowling, Howard, Moyer and Phelps were all on Tyndall’s basketball staff at Southern Miss. Pinkins joins the Volunteers after three years at Ole Miss.

 

“I couldn’t be more excited about the staff that we’ve assembled here at Tennessee,” Tyndall said. “Every one of these guys is a great mentor and role model for our student-athletes. This is a young, ambitious staff that will never be outworked, I can assure you.

 

“I think our fans our really going to enjoy getting to know each of these guys. And along those same lines, I know we as a staff are eager to embrace the Tennessee fan base and build a fun and interactive relationship with the greatest fans in the world.”

 

Veteran athletic trainer Chad Newman will continue to serve the program’s sports medicine needs, as he enters his 20th year at UT.
