MURFREESBORO- The Chowan University athletic department has announced the addition of Charles Rhodes to the men's basketball staff. Rhodes returns to his alma mater to serve as Assistant Men's Basketball Coach. The Chapel Hill, North Carolina native was a standout student-athlete for the Hawks.
Men's Basketball Head Coach Brett Vincent noted, "We are glad to have Charles back on campus as an assistant coach. He had a wonderful playing career here. He brings college and professional playing experience to our program along with the necessary skillset to coach at this level. Charles relates well to our student-athletes and he is familiar with the Chowan community."
After a four year career with the Hawks, Rhodes graduated as Chowan's sixth all-time leading scorer with 1,082 career points and posted a school record 48.7% three-point percentage during the 2008-2009 season. He is one of ten 1,000 point career scorers as part of Chowan's four-year classification era.
Over the course of his career, Rhodes was named to the NCCAA National All-Tournament team (2008) and CIAA All-Tournament Team (2011). Rhodes led the Hawks to the NCCAA National Tournament as a freshman and capped off his career by propelling the men's basketball team to their first (and only) CIAA Tournament semifinal appearance in Chowan's first year as part of the storied CIAA.
