SEWANEE, Tenn. - Announced by head coach Brian Emerson, the Sewanee men's basketball staff will welcome home Brody Stone C'17, who played four seasons with the men's basketball team at Sewanee, as an assistant coach.
Stone returns to the Domain after a two-year stint at Lee University as a graduate assistant coach. While with the Flames, he helped the team to back-to-back appearances in the Gulf South Conference Men's Basketball Championship.
"I am beyond excited to announce Brody as our new assistant coach," said Emerson. "He had a great career at Sewanee both on and off the court and he will be an exceptional role model for our student-athletes. His experience the past two years at Lee University has helped prepare him for this role and I am looking forward to having him back on campus."
A four-year letterwinner with the men's basketball program at Sewanee from 2014-17, Stone was a two-time All-Conference selection and was named to the Southern Athletic Association Academic Honor Roll twice.
In 100 career games, Stone scored 904 points with a field goal percentage of 54.1. On ball control, he corralled 650 rebounds.
Earning All-SAA Second Team honors his junior year, he averaged 8.7 points and 7.0 rebounds per game.
The next year, in 2017, he was named a First Team All-SAA selection, as he was the only player to average a double-double in the conference. Averaging 34.2 minutes per game, he led the league in rebounds (10.9) and was fourth in scoring (15.1).
On a national level, the Knoxville, Tenn. native was 30th in both rebounds per game and defensive rebounds per game (7.48). On the offensive glass, he posted 3.4 per game for 46th-best in all of NCAA Division III. Recording 14 double-doubles, 26th-most in the nation, his 295 rebounds were 24th in the country.
"Sewanee is truly a place like no other. I am extremely blessed and excited to be returning to the mountain," Stone commented. "I am eager to make an impact on a place and program that had such a significant impact on me. I cannot wait to get to work with Coach Emerson and build on the foundation that has been established."
Graduating Cum Laude from The University of the South in 2017, Stone has a Bachelors Degree in Economics. He earned his Masters Degree in Business Administration from Lee in 2019.
