Former NC State guard Quentin Jackson is returning as head basketball coach for Word of God, the Holy Rams announced Wednesday.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Word of God and feel privileged to have the opportunity to return. This just feels like home,” said Jackson. “I was fortunate to be coached by Hall of Famer Morgan Wootten in high school, and I hope to emulate his success on and off the court by teaching my students how to be great players and good men.”
Jackson replaces Randy Pulley who resigned as the head basketball coach last week to take a position coaching at Christian Faith Center. Pulley took over the program last season after Quentin Jackson left the school, leading the Holy Rams to a 20-9 record.
Jackson played basketball at NC State University from 1985 to 1988 as a starting point guard. He was instrumental in assisting the Wolfpack to the 1987 ACC Tournament Championship title. Following his graduation, the Wolfpack guard went on to play for the Harlem Globetrotters for the ‘88/‘89 season. Jackson returned to his alma mater in 2006 as the Director of Operations for the men’s basketball team. Jackson then led the Holy Rams as Head Coach for the ‘10/’11 season.
“Coach Jackson did a fantastic job leading our young men in the past,” said Dr. Frank Summerfield, Pastor at Word of God Fellowship Church. “We are grateful for his willingness to return to Word of God and share his extensive basketball experience with these young players.”
Word of God is scheduled to appear in the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational in December. The team features one of the top point guards in the Class of 2013 in Josh Newkirk.
