Former point guard and 2006 graduate Kevin Hammack returns to The Citadel as a graduate assistant under on Chuck Driesell’s staff. The position will allow Hammack to focus on the creation of The Citadel Basketball Players Association, travel plans and other game operation responsibilities for the 2011-12 season. He served as the coordinator for the 2011 Chuck Driesell Basketball Camps.
Hammack joins the Bulldogs after spending the last season at Mount Olive College. While there he served as assistant coach and junior varsity head coach, focusing on academic success as well as the recruiting of Northern Virginia and Maryland. The Trojans were 14-13 and extended their string of consecutive winning seasons to nine by virtue of winning four of their final six contests.
During his playing days at The Citadel (2002-07), Hammack earned the starting nod in 107 of 118 contests, converted 133 3-point field goals, grabbed 457 rebounds, dished out 432 assists and scored 1,237 points. He still holds the program record for career steals (223) and is responsible for more assists (134) than any other Bulldog freshman since the 1972-73 season, when the NCAA unilaterally granted freshmen eligibility.
A native of Baltimore, Md., Hammack earned a bachelor of science degree in business administration from The Citadel in 2006 and is currently seeking a master of arts in teaching.
