DAYTON – Wright State men’s basketball head coach Scott Nagy has announced the promotion of longtime assistant Clint Sargent to the associate head coach for the Raiders.
“Clint has made a huge impact on my staff over the last five seasons at Wright State,” Nagy said. “He is an integral part in all facets of the program, especially in the recruiting and skill development. He has worked extremely hard and deserves a lot of credit.”
Sargent has been on the Raider bench as Nagy and Wright State have captured at least a share of three-straight Horizon League regular season titles, a trip to the 2018 NCAA Tournament and an NIT appearance in 2019. The Raiders have earned 18 Horizon League postseason honors and Nagy has tallied three HL Coach of the Year nods since arriving prior to the 2016-17 campaign.
“I am very thankful to Coach Nagy for his continued trust here at Wright State,” Sargent said. “Our players, staff, and administrators have worked hard to build a winning culture and I look forward to serving them in the years to come.”
Sargent joined the Wright State staff in the spring of 2016 with Nagy from South Dakota State, where he had been on the sidelines on staff since the 2013-14 season. A two-time All-Summit League Second Team selection, Sargent graduated from South Dakota State in 2011 and played two seasons professionally with USC Heidelberg in the German ProA League before returning to the Jackrabbit bench.
Sargent and his wife, former Jackrabbit women’s basketball standout Jill Young, live in the Dayton area with their daughter, Gracie, and sons, CJ and Jordy.
