CCC&TI Announces New Men’s Head Basketball Coach (2018-06-02 17:22:15)

Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute has announced two major moves in its
Athletic Department, but both changes involve familiar faces.

Long-time Men’s Basketball Head Coach and Athletic Director Matt Anderson is shifting his
focus to a full-time Athletic Director role, while former Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach,
Jamison McIver, will take over as the new Head Coach.

“I’m excited about this transition and the direction our athletic program is headed,”
Anderson said. “I am very proud of what we have collectively built here and look forward
to continuing to take it to new heights.”

McIver had served as Assistant Coach for six years, during which time the Cobras had
experienced unprecedented success, including three trips to the National Junior College
Athletic Association National Championship Tournament.

“Jamison has played a huge part in our success over this time and has shown unwavering
loyalty to the institution by turning down positions at other universities,” Anderson said.
“He has an amazing basketball IQ and ability to relate to and mentor young men. He is one
of the best coaches I have ever worked with, and I am confident he has the qualities needed
to take our men’s basketball program to new heights.”

Prior to joining the staff at CCC&TI, McIver spent two years as Assistant Men’s Basketball
Coach at Lenoir-Rhyne University and two years as Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach at
Brevard College, both Division II programs. As a player, McIver played four seasons at Mars
Hill University, including a standout senior season when he led the team in assists and was
among the team’s top scorers.

“It’s an honor to be named head coach of Caldwell Community College and Technical
Institute, and I would like to personally thank Dr. Mark Poarch, Dena Holman and Coach
Matt Anderson for this opportunity,” McIver said. “Caldwell has been great to me and I am
looking forward to the new challenge and duties.”

McIver said he plans to continue Caldwell’s up-tempo style of play, and the recruiting focus
on North Carolina and South Carolina athletes.
