ICC Hires Eric Bozeman as New Assistant Basketball Coach
FULTON, Miss. (WCBI/LetsGoICC.com) – Itawamba Community College men’s head basketball coach Grant Pate has introduced Eric Bozeman as the Indians’ new assistant basketball coach.
Bozeman comes to Fulton from Northwestern Oklahoma State University where he was the women’s head basketball coach after seven seasons as the head men’s basketball coach at Southern Arkansas University.
While at Southern Arkansas, he compiled a 73-116 record and led the Muleriders to the Great American Conference (GAC) Tournament in his final season. It was the program’s first postseason tournament berth in 10 years.
He was the assistant coach of the Reddies from 1991-93 before taking over as head coach and was the face of the Henderson State program from 1993-98. He led the squad to a 71-67 record during his tenure as head coach.
Bozeman led Henderson to back-to-back 20-win seasons before taking the job as assistant men’s head coach at Ole Miss. He worked under head coach Rod Barnes from 1998-2005 and helped lead the Rebels to three 20-win seasons, three NCAA Tournament berths and a Sweet 16 appearance in 2000-01.
The Little Rock, Ark. native replaces former assistant coach Adam Kirk, who helped lead the Indians to the 2013-14 MACJC Championship and took over as the men’s head basketball coach at Ripley High School.
Bozeman has a Master’s of Science from Henderson State and a Bachelor of Science in Education from Arkansas Tech, where he was an all-conference selection for the men’s basketball team.
