Dustin Kerns was named the new Presbyterian College head men’s basketball coach Tuesday morning, and was to be officially introduced at 2:30 p.m. press conference at the Harper Center for the Arts, located on PC’s campus.
Kerns, who has been the associate head coach at Wofford for four years, replaces Gregg Nibert as PC’s coach. Nibert stepped down from the post in April after 28 years at the helm.
“I look forward to the process of developing our players on and off the court and (building) a team that plays together, for one another, and for Presbyterian College,” Kerns said in a release. “We will establish a work ethic and team culture that will represent Presbyterian proudly in Clinton and beyond.”
Kerns, who helped the Terriers to back-to-back Southern Conference Tournament titles in 2014 and 2015, takes over a program that has lost at least 20 games in each of the past five seasons.
