CHICKASHA – A national search for a head men’s basketball coach at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma begins Monday after Vinson Metcalf resigned on Thursday afternoon citing personal and family reasons.
Assistant Coach Chris Francis will serve as interim head coach, mentored by former head coach and current athletic director, Brisco McPherson.
“I appreciate Coach Metcalf’s service to the university for the last 15 years,” McPherson said. “He has been an asset to our program, and I wish him well.”
CHICKASHA – After 40 years dedicated to the university’s athletic programs and more than a decade as an athletic director, the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma’s Brisco McPherson became the NAIA’s fourth member of the John McLendon Minority Athletics Administrators Hall of Fame.
The John McLendon Minority Scholarship Steering Committee unanimously selected McPherson as this year’s inductee, who was a long-time men’s basketball coach and led the Drovers to the 2002 NAIA National Championship.
