Johnny Taylor Returning to UTC as Grad Assistant
Johnny Taylor, who led the Chattanooga Mocs on their only NCAA tournament Sweet 16 run, is coming home. Mocs new head coach Will Wade has hired Taylor as a graduate assistant coach.
Taylor, a Howard High School graduate, led the Mocs to a 24-11 record and the Southern Conference championship as a senior in 1997. The Mocs upset Georgia then Illinois in the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament, before losing to Providence in the Sweet 16.
Taylor became UTC's first-ever first-round pick in the NBA draft, selected by the Orlando Magic. He played for the Magic and the Denver Nuggets before moving overseas to play professionally.
Taylor retired after last season and decided to return to Chattanooga to finish work on his degree and begin a coaching career. Taylor will conduct a basketball camp at Notre Dame High School in early August.By Darrell Patterson
