N.C. Central basketball coach LeVelle Moton has announced the hiring of former Duke standout Robert Brickey as assistant coach with the Eagles.
Brickey comes to NCCU after a year with the women's basketball program at Duke as the assistant director of basketball operations.
He also was the head coach at Shaw University for three years (2005-2008). Before his arrival at Shaw, Brickey was an assistant coach at James Madison (2004-05), Southern Methodist (2002-04), and the United States Military Academy (2000-02).
He also served as the community outreach coordinator with the Blue Devils from 1999-2000, before going into the coaching business.
“Robert brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our staff,” Moton said in a statement. “Because of his previous stops at the Division I level at places like James Madison, West Point, and SMU, his recruiting territories expand outside of North Carolina. At the same time, he is a hometown guy, with strong ties to the Triangle and Fayetteville areas. Everything he does and everything he stands for is parallel to what I was looking for in an assistant coach."
A native of Fayetteville, Brickey played four years at Duke from 1986-90. He served as team captain in 1990 and received first team All-Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Tournament honors in 1988.
