The Clemson Tigers men’s basketball team added former standout point guard Terrell McIntyre to its coaching staff Thursday. Coach Brad Brownell announced that McIntyre will be director of player development.
“We are excited to have Terrell back on campus as a significant member of our staff in this new position,” said Brownell, according to Tigernet.com. “Terrell is among the greatest players in our history and sets a terrific example for our current players and players we will be recruiting. We see his role similar to the role Jeff Davis serves in our football program.”
McIntyre played for Clemson from 1995-99 and earned All-ACC honors three times. He led the Tigers to the NCAA Tournament three times and helped take Clemson to the Sweet 16 in 1997.
The former point guard is second in Clemson history in scoring with 1,839 points. He also is second in 3-point field goals, third in assists and fourth in steals. He was inducted into the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame in 2007.
After college, McIntyre played 12 seasons in Europe and was a four-time Italian League champion. He was MVP in the Italian League in 2007 and 2009.
But after all the places he’s been, McIntyre is thrilled to be back where his career started.
“When Coach Brownell called me I jumped at the chance to come back to Clemson,” said McIntyre, according to tigernet.com. “This program has done so much for me, and Clemson is a place I love. Coach Brownell has been terrific and I am glad to be back on campus with the Clemson basketball family.”
