Orangeburg, SC (WLTX) - Claflin University has named Ricky Jackson as their new men's basketball coach.
School officials introduced Jackson Wednesday at a news conference on campus.
"I am honored to come to Claflin and build a winning program on and off the court," Jackson said.
Jackson has been serving as an assistant at Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina. He previously was the head coach at Gloucester County College.
He takes over from Scott Monarch, who took the position this spring but quickly resigned to go to the University of North Texas.
