"A New Era Begins" For Fresno State Basketball

The California State University, Fresno is celebrating today.  The Bulldog basketball team has a new head coach who Jerry Huerta of The Collegian touts will "lead them into the Mountain West Conference."  Fresno picked University of Texas assistant Rodney Terry as head coach of the men’s basketball team, and the school was deliberate about his selection.  Over the course of several weeks a panel of five looked at over 80 candidates before making a decision according to Huerta.  Terry has been an assistant under Rick Barnes for nine seasons at Texas and brings a winning attitude with solid experience with him to the California school. 

The former Longhorn assistant is also one of the better college recruiters.  He brought top high school prospects to the University of Texas, and over the years several of the Longhorns were recruited from California.  Terry's abilty to gain the confidence and sign potential players should pay off well for the Fresno St. Bulldogs (14-17), a basketball team that has struggled in the WAC.  Rodney Terry is a good choice for the Dogs, who know that the hoops road in the MWC is not going to get any easier.  The new head coach is taking over a program that's suffered through four straight losing seasons and dwindling attendance.

Terry replaces Steve Cleveland, who went 92-96 after six seasons.
