Our New Head Coach: Alan Major



Thad Matta’s coaching tree includes Sean Miller, Brad Stevens, and others…A solid hire. Want to hear his first press conference/plan of attack for our instate recruiting.

Welcome aboard coach.

Nice hire imo. Matta’s coaching tree is very solid. Our frontcourt should be excited. This guy has coached A LOT of talent.

Welcome to NinerNation coach!

Welcome to Charlotte Major


Nice! I’m pumped


I’m really excited, I think this will prove to be a great hire.

Nice. Welcome aboard

Welcome to Charlotte!


Welcome, new guy.

4/9 day will be celebrated every year now

So any idea if he can bring any players with him?

I like it. Has a strong resume as an AHC. Didnt seem like we looked at current head coaches at all, so he is a young upper echelon assistant who has coached lots of talented big men, and I’m sure he interviewed well at the final 4. Congrats to Alan Major, really excited to see what you can do! Go to work soon! :stuck_out_tongue:

Good Hire!!!
Story on ninerreport

Clemson’s lone recruit is seeking a release from his LOI.


(PF Marcus Thornton)

Or what about a guy like Geron Johnson, #56 on ESPNs top 100 for 2010… 6’2 185 lb SG from Dayton Ohio, so far looking at Duquesne, Cleveland St and Wright State.

OSU has the #2 class in the country for 2010 per ESPN/Scouts,Inc. All signed, but Major should have inroads on some plan Bs and 2011 guys.


If anything comes of it, I’ll post in the recruiting forum. Major probably wants to name some staff first.


Great news! Welcome to Niner Nation Major!
