Head Coach Jerrod Calhoun announced on Wednesday the addition of Jason Slay as an assistant coach on the Youngstown State men’s basketball staff.
Prior to joining YSU, Slay spent two seasons at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) from 2015-17. In 2016-17, he mentored QJ Peterson, a 2017 All-Southern Conference First-Team selection by the media and a coaches’ second-team all-conference pick.
“Jason Slay is one of the up and coming guys in the business,” Calhoun said. “The thing about Jason is that he started at the bottom and has worked his way up at the Division II level, the prep school level and various Division I coaching stops.
“Jason will get us into parts of the country – North Carolina, Virginia – that I think are attractive to Youngstown State. He is very well-rounded.”
Slay spent the 2014-15 season at East Tennessee State, and served as an assistant coach at Tennessee State University in 2013-14. He was the Director of Basketball Operations at Georgia Southern 2012-13.
