Corey Barker Hired as Men's Basketball Assistant

The third and final Men's Basketball Assistant has joined the fold...he is Corey Barker.  Corey was an assistant for two years at Arkansas State, during which time they had 38 wins.  Prior to that, he was an assistant at Paris JC in Texas (no, not THAT Paris) and before that he was a HS assistant in Houston, which is where he is from.  He played his college ball at Prairie View A&M.

One of the key skills of an assistant is to develop players...with that, I quote from the BGSU release.

At A-State, Barker helped to tutor Kirk Van Slyke and Melvin Johnson III. Van Slyke was named to the 2013-14 Sun Belt All-Conference Second-Team and was named to both the all-league second-team by College Sports Madness and to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 24 First-Team. He was also a recipient of a SBC Academic Honor Roll Award, while Johnson III garnered third-team all-conference accolades and was also chosen as a College Sports Madness all-conference third-team performer.

Welcome to the Falcons, Corey.
