Corey Mullins Named Assistant Women's Basketball Coach
"I am thrilled that Coach Mullins will be joining our staff," said Fisher. "Corey is a tremendous person who values the same core principles of hard work and sacrifice that our program is built on. He has collegiate experience as both a head and assistant coach and I will rely heavily on him for advice in all aspects of our program. Coach Mullins has a wonderful family as well, and it is a privilege to welcome them to the PC community."
Mullins arrives at PC after two seasons as the head women's basketball coach at Covenant (Ga.) College. In his second year, Mullins improved on his first year's win total as the Scots played their first campaign as Great South Athletic Conference members. The new Blue Hose assistant guided the program to a tie for sixth place, helped the program secure an All-Freshman Team selection and presided over six All-Academic Team selections, second-most in the league.
"The opportunity to work at PC is truly an honor for me and my family," said Mullins. "I have great respect for Coach Fisher and the foundations in which he has built this program. I am looking forward to coming alongside Coach Fisher and Coach Elliot to help take this program to another level. My family is looking forward to connecting with the community and serving the program and the college to the best of our abilities."
