The Utica Bulldogs men’s basketball coaching staff is expanding with the arrivals of Jordan Whittington and Sam Waniewski.
New graduate assistant for the Hinds CC Basketball team, Jordan Whittington spent last season as an assistant boys basketball coach at Madison Central High School, where he was a 2015 graduate. In 2018, Whittington was named co-head manager for the Mississippi State University men’s basketball team. While there, Whittington was part of the team that went to the NCAA Tournament and had seven players go on to play in the NBA.
Sam Waniewski is in his first season at Hinds CC, after previously assisting at Dyersburg State (Tenn.) Community College and Seward County (Kan.) Community College. On top of that, Waniewski has spent time as an assistant coach at University of Louisiana-Monroe, Tallahassee (Fla.) Community College, Midland (Texas) College and Vincennes (Ind.) University. At Vincennes, he helped guide the team to a 30-0 regular season record and 33-2 overall record.
Whittington and Waniewski are very excited to be part of the Utica Bulldogs men’s basketball team. They are both looking forward to serve the basketball program and make a difference on the court and off the court.
Head coach Jonathan Nevol is delighted to add these two new members to the coaching staff. “Jordan is a great addition to our staff here,” Nevol said. In the opinion of head coach Nevol, “Sam is a very good coach who is a hard worker and has excellent relationships with everyone.”
