UTEP’s Rodney Terry Appointed to NABC Division I Congress

UTEP Men’s Basketball Head Coach Rodney Terry has been tabbed the congressman for Conference USA on the National Association of Basketball Coaches Division I Congress. 

Terry takes the spot previously occupied by Florida Atlantic head coach Michael Curry.

“I’m deeply honored and very excited to represent Conference USA on the NABC Congress,” Terry said.  “I was fortunate to serve in this role at Fresno State, and look forward to doing so again at UTEP.  The Congress plays such a critical role, working with the NCAA and its committees to better the lives of our student-athletes while continuing to elevate our great game.”

The NABC Division I Congress conducts a conference call monthly, in addition to an annual in-person meeting during the NABC Convention.

Terry led Fresno State to four 20-win seasons and three postseason tournaments in the last five years, including the 2016 NCAA Tournament after the Bulldogs captured the Mountain West Conference championship.  He took the reins of the UTEP program on March 12. 

Terry coached 15 All-Conference players in seven seasons at Fresno State, including the 2016 MWC Player of the Year Marvelle Harris.  He previously was an assistant coach at Texas for nine seasons, during a stretch where the Longhorns racked up 232 victories, nine NCAA Tournament bids, a Final Four berth in 2003 and trips to the Elite Eight in 2006 and 2008. 

While at Texas, he helped recruit 10 McDonald’s All-Americans including current NBA standouts LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Durant and Tristan Thompson.
