What was reported on WCTV on Monday night became official Thursday afternoon. Weeks after pushing out former head coach Mike Gillespie, they are bringing in Eugene Harris to be the next head Rattler.
Coach Harris will have some talent to work with, Coach Gillespie brought the Rattlers into the entry game for the NCAA Tournament last season after winning the MEAC Championship; however, controversy off the court was his undoing.
In Coach Harris, the Rattlers bring in a former Seminole. Harris was a co-captain of the 1978 squad that won the Metro Conference.
His 956 career points ranks in the top 50 in FSU history. These days he's a coach with experience at Auburn, and Georgia State.
