Childress joins Wake Forest basketball staff
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Former Wake Forest star Randolph Childress is the Demon Deacons' new director of player development.
Coach Jeff Bzdelik said Wednesday that Childress earned a full-time job on his staff after spending nearly a year as an assistant to athletic director Ron Wellman.
Bzdelik says Childress "exemplifies our vision of winning championships without compromising our values."
Childress made a Wake Forest-record 329 3-pointers from 1990-95, was the MVP of the 1995 Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and ranks second in school history with 2,208 career points.
He was drafted by Detroit in 1995 and played a total of two seasons with the Pistons and Portland Trail Blazers. His jersey No. 22 was retired by the school.
Childress calls his new job "a dream come true."
