Northest Mississippi Community College head basketball coach Cord Wright has been named as one of the “hot junior college coaches” in the country by the Basketball Times according to a press release from the college.
Wright is in his 6th season leading the Tigers and was one of only 55 coaches nationwide given this honor. He is 80-53 in his first five season.
“It’s all because of the foundation that’s been laid here. Northeast has a beautiful campus and we have good facilities and a winning tradition. I’m just excited to continue to put a good brand out there,” Wright cited as reasons for receiving this distinction.
Northeast begins the 2018-19 campaign on Tuesday, November 6 against Faith (Ark.) Preparatory Academy.
