Former Red Raider joins coaching staff at Trinity Christian

Posted: June 8, 2012 - 10:28pm  |  Updated: June 9, 2012 - 12:38am

As he spent the last two seasons serving as the radio color commentator for Texas Tech basketball broadcasts, Andy Ellis discovered a renewed sense of passion for the game he played professionally overseas for six seasons.

Motivated by that courtside experience, the former Red Raider big man will now impart his wisdom to a younger generation. Ellis has joined coach Jeremy McFerrin’s staff at Trinity Christian as an assistant for the upcoming season, where he will be tasked with instructing the team’s post players.

“Being around the Tech program the last two seasons, made me feel like I have something to give,” Ellis said, “and this will keep me close to the game.”

When he finished his four-year career at Tech, the 6-foot-11 Ellis was 12th on the school’s all-time scoring list (1,431 points). His six-year pro career in overseas included stops in Turkey, Italy and Japan.

McFerrin said he is excited about the experience Ellis, a Lamesa native, will bring to the staff, noting that his knowledge of the intricacies of post play will be a major benefit.

“He’s a guy you can really bounce ideas off of,” McFerrin said, “because he’s played for so many great coaches and has been in so many different situations and scenarios.”

Ellis said he has been impressed with the work ethic of the Trinity Christian players, with about 25 regularly showing up for voluntary summer workouts.

“When you have players who are that dedicated,” Ellis said, “you can teach them a lot.”

The Lions marched to the TAPPS 4A state quarterfinals last season but will have to replace All-City Player of the Year Parker Wentz, among others.

“I think guys are excited,” McFerrin said. “A lot of guys will have a window of opportunity to step and help us continue to make this a successful program.”
