Former point guard and Maryland native, Tony Bethel, has been named "Video Coordinator" and will be filling the role vacated by Levi Watkins. With Justin Gainey's departure to Elon (assistant coach), Levi Watkins was named as the "Director of Operations," allowing room for Bethel to be hired. This move had been in the works for sometime but we were unable to announce it due to the hiring freeze that forced NC State to hold off on officially giving Tony the job.
Bethel, a transfer from Georgetown, was part of a backcourt with Julius Hodge. A backcourt which Hodge once dubbed "the best in the nation." Bethel battled injury and sickness throughout his tenure with the Pack, but did finish his senior season shooting 43% from beyond the arc. Bethel was a heady scoring guard who played two seasons under Herb Sendek before graduating and trying his hand in the D-League. We will catch up with Tony as soon as we can to get his take on coming back and reuniting with the Wolfpack family.
