Stith Joining Coaching Staff at ODU

Bryant Stith, the all-time leading scorer in Virginia basketball history, is joining his old college coach at Old Dominion.

The school announced the addition of Stith as an assistant coach on Friday. Stith joins the staff of Jeff Jones, the one-time Virginia coach who was hired at Old Dominion in April.

"I am elated to have Bryant joining our staff at Old Dominion," Jones said in a release on Friday. "He was a tremendous basketball player, and had tremendous collegiate and NBA careers, but the special thing about Bryant is that as good as he was as a basketball player he's even better as a person. He will be a great addition to our staff, and a great addition to the community."

Stith won the 1989 ACC rookie of the year award under Terry Holland at Virginia, then played the final three years of his college career for Jones. Stith finished his career in 1992 with 2,516 points -- still the highest total in the program's history -- and was a three-time All-ACC selection, as well as the Most Valuable Player of the 1992 NIT.

Stith was the 13th overall pick in the 1992 NBA Draft by the Denver Nuggets, and spent a decade in the league before retiring in 2002.

Stith had most recently served as the boys basketball coach at Brunswick High School, guiding the Bulldogs to the last three consecutive Double-A state championships.
