BANNER ELK, N.C. --- Matt Duble has been named the Lees-McRae women’s basketball assistant coach, announced the Vice President Director of Athletics and Club Sports Craig McPhail Tuesday afternoon.
“With Matt, we have gained a person with significant experience in women’s basketball, a hunger and passion for NCAA Division II, as well as a warm personality to help continue the growth of our women’s basketball program,” said McPhail. “I am looking forward to working for him and helping him and Coach Michele Williams achieve all of their goals. His diverse skill set is appreciated as I am certain he will be involved and engaged with many projects in our athletic department.”
Duble wrapped up a year as the assistant women’s basketball coach at the University of Alabama-Huntsville while the Chargers set a NCAA Division II record for most consecutive games (six) with 100+ points. The squad finished with 15 wins and third in the Gulf South Conference. Two Chargers were named to the 2014 Daktronics All-South Region Team with Duble’s assistance.
Prior to UAH, Duble was the assistant women’s basketball coach at Covenant College (2003-2012) in Lookout Mountain, Ga. During his tenure, he served as a junior varsity head coach during the school’s transition from NAIA to Division III. The Scots produced three All-Americans, a conference championship and National Tournament appearance while Duble was on staff.
The Covenant College graduate (2012) provided assistance to the Scots’ sports information office for a total of six years.
“I am happy and excited to have Matt join our basketball program. I believe his knowledge and work ethic will help our team take the next step needed toward becoming a championship caliber program,” praised Williams.
He is NCAA Division II and III recruiting certified as well as CPR and First Aid certified.
