GREENVILLE, N.C. Brooks Lee has been named Director of Basketball Operations at East Carolina University. The son of former Campbell coach Billy Lee, Brooks enters his second season as a collegiate basketball coach after serving as an assistant coach at Wofford last season.

"We're very happy to add Brooks to our staff," said head coach Bill Herrion. "As the son of a coach, he's been around the game his entire life and possesses a lot of knowledge about it. He is a good young coach and we're excited about having him become a part of our program."

"I have a lot of respect for Coach Herrion and I'm very excited about the opportunity that he's given me," stated Lee. "The chance to learn under him and broaden my knowledge of the game is a tremendous opportunity. I'm looking forward to being a part of Pirate basketball."

His duties will include film exchange, team travel and coordinating the Bill Herrion Basketball Camp.

Lee graduated from Campbell in 2002 with a degree in sport management and completed work on his Master's degree in exercise science. He averaged 9.7 points and 4.3 assists while starting all 26 games for the Camels this past season. He was named to the Atlantic Sun All-Academic team. Lee placed second in the A-Sun with his team-best 87.9 free-throw percentage. At one point, he made 24 consecutive attempts at the charity stripe.

In just two seasons at Campbell, after transferring from High Point, Lee placed sixth on the Camels' career list for assists with 254. He was also second in career average (4.8) while placing seventh for all-time three-point field-goal percentage (39.3).

In the 2001-02 campaign, Lee topped the Atlantic Sun in assists at 5.2 per contest. He started all 53 games over his final two seasons in Buies Creek.

His father, Billy, began his collegiate coaching career at East Carolina as a graduate assistant. He was a member of the Pirate coaching staff from 1976-78.
