Jeremy Shyatt was named Director of Basketball Operations at East Carolina University by head coach Ricky Stokes to complete his initial staff.
Shyatt, the oldest son of former Clemson coach and University of Florida assistant coach Larry Shyatt, comes to ECU after spending the past two seasons as a volunteer assistant coach at the University of South Carolina while pursuing a master's degree in advertising. Shyatt enrolled at USC after earning his bachelor's degree in marketing from Clemson in 2003.
"I'm absolutely thrilled to be a part of the coaching staff here at ECU," said Shyatt. "I've only heard great things about ECU and I'm very excited to have the opportunity to work here. I think I've gotten the best of both worlds; a great place to live and great coaches to work alongside."
"We're very excited to have Jeremy complete our staff," stated Stokes. " As the son of a coach, he's grown up around college basketball and has a good understanding of everything that is involved with it. Jeremy has a great basketball mind and gets along well with players. He did an outstanding job at South Carolina and I expect he'll do the same with all the many hats we'll ask him to wear."
Shyatt served as Director of Boys and Girls Summer Day Camps with the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers the past three years.
Shyatt earned a varsity letter as a freshman on the Clemson basketball team in 1999-2000. The following season he began his coaching career as a student assistant coach for the next three seasons. He was named to the All-ACC Honor Roll in 2000.
Shyatt, a 1999 graduate of D.W. Daniel High School in Clemson, S.C., lettered three years in basketball (including a year in Laramie, Wy.) and was named all-area in 1999 by Easley Progress and Anderson Independent Mail. In addition, he was named Academic All-State by the High School Sports Report.
