jamaal_jackson(Bluefield)—Bluefield State College has selected Jamaal Jackson as the College's Interim Men's Head Basketball Coach. Jackson was the Associate Men's Head Basketball Coach at Stillman (AL) College prior to accepting the interim head coaching position at BSC.

"I'm grateful to the decision-makers at Bluefield State College for this opportunity," Jackson noted on Wednesday. "I look forward to arriving in Bluefield later this week, meeting with the players on the team, and beginning practice on October 15."

His coaching background includes an internship with The Ohio State University men's basketball program, and assistant basketball coaching positions at Kentucky State University and Stillman College.

Looking toward the 2011-12 basketball season at BSC, Coach Jackson said, "We will work on conditioning, evaluating personnel during the first week or two, and implementing our team concepts. My first priority is to the student-athletes on the team. I want them to know that they are in good hands and that I have their best interests at heart."
