SCSU's Pitt Promoted to Associate Head Basketball Coach

ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- South Carolina State men’s basketball coach Murray Garvin announced the promotion of assistant Rio Pitt to associate head coach.

Pitt, who is entering his sixth season as a member of the SC State basketball staff, will -- among other duties -- coordinate recruiting and academics for the Bulldogs and also be responsible for developing the SC State post players along with on-the-floor coaching duties.

“Coach Pitt is one of the brightest young coaches that I have had the pleasure to work with over the span of my career on the collegiate level,” said Garvin. “He is hard-working and has demonstrated the characteristics that will one day allow him to run his own program as a head coach.”

Garvin noted, “With the recent departure of Coach Ken Spencer to Fayetteville State University, many wondered who would replace him as my right hand guy. I never had that concern as Rio has demonstrated over the years that he is ready for the responsibility of being second in command.”
