SHREVEPORT—Centenary head men’s basketball coach Rob Flaska has announced that Brandon Curran will join the Gents’ coaching staff on July 1st. Curran will serve in all assistant coaching capacities as he takes the place of former assistant Sean LeBeauf, who is currently an assistant coach at Southern University in Baton Rouge, La.

 

Curran comes to Centenary after serving as the head coach of the Jacksonville College Jaguar basketball program in Jacksonville, Tex., over the last four years. While at JBC, Curran’s teams compiled a combined 49–44 record over his final three seasons, including a tie for second place in the very challenging Region 14 athletic conference in 2002–2003. His teams reached postseason play every year under his guidance, and made five consecutive postseason tournament appearances since he joined the program in 1998–1999 (the second longest string of consecutive tournament appearances in the Region). 

Curran worked for three years as the assistant men's basketball coach for Jacksonville College from 1998 to 2001. Coach Curran's first recruiting class at JBC saw six players sign Division I scholarships, including former Centenary player Melvin Dews.

 

Curran began his coaching career at the University of Texas at Austin where he served as a student assistant on the Longhorn's 1997 Sweet Sixteen Team. After graduating from Texas, he joined the Galveston Storm of the Southwest Professional Basketball League as an assistant coach for the 1997-1998 season.
