Corbin Promoted on Hoops Staff

WINCHESTER, Va. - Shenandoah University Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Doug Zipp and head men's basketball coach Rob Pryor announced Monday that Allen Corbin has been promoted to full-time assistant men's basketball coach.

Corbin, who joined the SU staff as Pryor's lead assistant prior to the 2011-12 campaign, becomes the 19th full-time coach in the department and the sixth full-time assistant.

"As part of our long-term plans, we are adding full-time assistant coaches in selected sports," Zipp said. "When we joined the ODAC, the university administration identified men's basketball as one of several programs that needed full-time assistants to help achieve a high level of competitiveness within the league.

"Today's addition is the first of what we hope are many additions to our staff.

"We are very happy to welcome Allen into this full-time role and look forward to working with him as he assists coach Pryor with the development of our men's basketball program."

Corbin played one year of basketball at Shenandoah before transferring to West Virginia University. He was a walk-on member of the Mountaineers basketball program during their run to the Elite Eight of the 2005 NCAA Tournament.

Following his 2006 graduation, Corbin was an assistant basketball coach at Musselman (W. Va.) and James Wood (Va.) high schools before serving on the staff at Shepherd (W. Va.) University for two seasons.

"I am very thankful to President Fitzsimmons and Doug to add this full-time position prior to the start of the playing season," Pryor said.

"Allen is a very good basketball coach with a passion for the game. Last year, as a part-time assistant, he was a tremendous help to me last year with recruiting and I know he will play an even bigger role now that he is full-time. This is an important step for us in the development of our program."

Pryor also announced that he has added Willie Lewis as a volunteer assistant. Lewis, a 2010 SU grad, previous was an assistant on the SU women's staff from 2010-12.

Shenandoah opens its 2012-13 men's hoops season with an exhibition game at West Virginia Wesleyan on November 9.
