Denmark, S.C. -- Voorhees College Athletics Director Willie Jefferson has named Michael Cheaney as the new head men’s basketball coach. Cheaney brings more than 10 years of coaching experience to Voorhees.

“I feel that Mr. Cheaney’s coaching experience and wealth of knowledge in the coaching arena will be a great asset to our men’s basketball program at Voorhees,” Jefferson said.
Cheaney graduated from Indiana State University with a Master of Science degree in sports management and from Kentucky Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice.
He is a member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches and the Black Coaches Association.
