Assistant Men's Basketball Coach
New to Huntington but not to coaching, Jeremy Henney enters his first year as an assistant under HU Head Coach Ty Platt. Henney responsibilities will include assisting with practices, recruiting, game day management and administrative duties.
Henney got his start as an assistant varsity boys basketball coach in the Catawba County Schools system where he spent four years before serving as an assistant at Lenoir-Rhyne College for a season.
His most notable coaching stint was as the Director of Men’s Basketball Operations at Davidson College for two years during which the program made it to the NCAA Elite 8 with a 29-7 record in 2007-08.
Henney went on to land his first head coaching position in the South Gibson School Corporation as the varsity boys basketball coach where he led his squad to a sectional runner-up in 2010.
“We are real excited to have Jeremy join our coaching staff,” said Coach Platt. “His energy, passion and love of the game will be a real asset to our overall program. He will help our players develop both on and off the court.”
The Fort Wayne, Indiana native earned his BS in Secondary Social Studies Education from Indiana University in 2002. He is currently a social studies teacher in the Huntington County Community School Corporation. He, his wife and two boys reside in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
