Former NBA player has been named the new boys basketball head coach at Jordan High School Falcons head coach on Friday. He takes over a program that went 7-17 during the 2018-19 season.
The school finished 1-9 in the Triangle-6. Their season concluded on Feb. 18 in the conference tournament against Panther Creek Catamounts.
“This is a special day for Jordan High School and our athletic department,” Jordan High School’s Director of Athletics Shelba Levins said. “When we seek leaders for our athletic programs, there are several different types of criteria that are important. We want coaches, who can provide both knowledge and leadership with an ability to mentor our student-athletes, as they cross the bridge from adolescence to the early stages of adulthood.”
The 44-year-old Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native has received his first head coaching opportunity. He previously served one season as the Detroit Pistons assistant coach in 2013-14.
Wallace won the NBA Championship in 2004 when the Pistons defeated the star-studded Los Angeles Lakers. He also was a four-time NBA All-Star.
He also was Mr. Basketball USA in 1993. In addition, he was the USA Today’s High School Player of the Year in 1993.
According to The Wilson Times, Wallace is one of two members from the Tar Heels 1995 Final Four team to coach in the high school level in North Carolina. Both coaches happen to now coach in Durham.
Donald Williams is the Wakefield High School head coach.
“It is not every day that you can add someone with as rich of a background in basketball, mentorship, and volunteerism as Rasheed Wallace,” Levins said. “I am thrilled to welcome him to Jordan and the Falcon family.”
