FAMU hires Samuels as head coach
June 16, 2014
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida A&M has hired Byron Samuels as its next men's basketball coach.
Samuels, 50, takes over a program that went 14-18 last season and hasn't had a winning record since 2006-07. The team is also serving a one-year postseason ban from the NCAA due to poor academic progress numbers. The Rattlers are not eligible to win the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) regular season championship in 2014-15.
Samuels is replacing Clemon Johnson, who new athletic director Kellen Winslow fired in April.
Samuels has been a head coach at Hillsborough Community College (2010-12), Radford (2002-07) and Hampton (1995-97). He was also an assistant coach at Tennessee from 1997-2001. Samuels was the basketball operations coordinator at Georgia for one year starting in June 2013. Other coaching stops included Washington State and UNC-Wilmington.
