Vernal "Jay" Maynard joins the Fayetteville State staff as an assistant Coach, after serving as head coach at Clay High School from 2005-08.
Maynard played at Winston-Salem State University, where he excelled as a three-point shooter, finishing his career second all-time at WSSU with 192 three-point field goals made.
A native of Jacksonville, N.C., Maynor is tied for the most three-point field goals made (95) in single-season WSSU history.
Maynard also played in the Tournament of America's on the Virgin Islands Olympic Team, where he played against NBA stars like Allen Iverson, Tim Duncan and Ray Allen.
Broncos head coach Alphonza Kee hopes Maynard can recruit those kinds of players to Fayetteville State.
"He'll be the chief recruiter," Kee said. "That'll be a big part of his role. He'll work with our guards as far as development."
Maynard was a player at WSSU, when Kee was an assistant for then WSSU head coach Philip Stitt.
"We both in essence played for the same coach in Rick Duckett," Kee said. "He came from a winning program at WSSU, which is a very good program in this league at every capacity. They won at a high level and they graduate at a high level, so he understands what I want on and off the court. He's a dynamic young man who is blue collar."
Maynard has also coached at Norcross High School in Norcross, Ga., Florida Community College in Jacksonville, Fla. and with the ABA's Jacksonville Jams.
Maynard earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and Bachelors of Science in Sport Management from WSSU in 2004. He also got a Masters degree in Education Curriculum Instruction as well as a Master in Educational Leadership from the University of Phoenix.
"I'm extremely fortunate to have quality people of high character and integrity," Kee said. "They are passionate about college basketball, passionate about the CIAA and passionate about making an impact. I'm as lucky as I can be."
