This news has social media blowing up! TSU just named coach Brian "Penny" Collins the Mens Basketball head coach.
Coach Penny Collins will switch recruiting focus to local talent for Tennessee State basketball.
He said "We're going to recruit locally and we're going to try to get the best players out of the city," Collins said. "Even when I was away from Nashville, I wanted to get the best guys from the city for whatever school I was at."
Coach Penny has a long history of recruiting Nashville. He scoured the area when was on the staffs at TSU (2008-09), Cumberland (2009-12), the head coach at Columbia State Community College (2012-15), an assistant at East Tennessee State (2015-17) and at Illinois State (2017-18).
I'm looking forward to big things coming from my Alma Mater!
