Charleston, S.C. – The Citadel head basketball coach Chuck Driesell announced on Monday that Andre Morgan has been added to staff as an assistant coach for the 2014-15 season.

Morgan replaces Justin Argenal, who accepted the same position at Southeast Missouri State.

Morgan joins Driesell’s Citadel staff after serving one season as the associate director of operations at UAB. In 2012-13 he was an administrative assistant under Blazer head coach Jerod Haase.

Prior to his stint at UAB, Morgan served as the assistant coach at Young Harris College for two seasons. In that capacity, he oversaw all areas of recruiting and played a critical role in the developmental phases of the Mountain Lions’ basketball program.

Morgan was responsible for the recruitment and coaching of Young Harris standout Malcolm Jackson, who earned 2013 Georgia Basketball Coaches Association Player of the Year honors.

In 2011-12, Morgan was the assistant coach on a Young Harris team that set a school record for wins in a season (22), marking a 17-game turnaround from the previous campaign.

He played the first two years of his career at Kennesaw State (2005-07) where he earned 2006 Atlantic Sun Conference Freshman Player of the Year accolades. He transferred to North Georgia College and State University and was the team captain and leading scorer during the 2008-09 season. It was there that he received his bachelor of science degree in business administration.
