Kee completed seven seasons as Broncos head men's basketball coach
Starting Senior Guard Began FSU Career Regular Student
Broncos' assistant coach always sought a life in college basketball
Midway through the first half, the Fayetteville State Broncos needed a spark. Jarmel Baxter provided one. And for a while, that was enough. But the Broncos couldn't overcome 22 turnovers and 28 fouls and Virginia Union had four players score in double figures to rally past Fayetteville State 82-77 on Monday in a nonconference game between CIAA foes
Corey Thompson is beginning his fourth season as an assistant coach with the Fayetteville State men's basketball program.
Thompson joined the Broncos coaching staff in 2011-12 after a successful tenure at UNC Pembroke. He was a member of the Braves' coaching staff for five years from 2006-11. Thompson helped lead his big men to the seventh-best rebounding margin (+8.0) in the nation during the 2010-11 campaign, as well as the top spot in the Peach Belt Conference in the same category. UNC Pembroke also finished the season 36th in the nation in both field-goal percentage defense (40.9) and blocked shots per game (4.2). The 2010-11 squad finished with the highest win total by a UNCP team since the school moved to the NCAA Division II ranks prior to the 1992-93 season as well as advancing to their first PBC Tournament Championship game and the school's first-ever NCAA Division II Tournament appearance.
He has also served as a Graduate Assistant Coach at Slippery Rock University (2002-04) in Slippery Rock, PA, and as a Volunteer Assistant Coach at Winston-Salem State (2004-05).
A Lumberton, NC native, Thompson starred for Winston-Salem State from 1998-02 and helped lead the school to a 97-25 overall record, four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances, two Sweet 16 appearances and back-to-back CIAA conference titles.
