Johnny Taylor Returning to Coach at UTC
One of the best basketball players in UTC history is returning to campus. Johnny Taylor is joining Will Wade's coaching staff as a grad assistant. Coach Wade will address Taylor's new job, and the Mocs new schedule during a press conference Tuesday afternoon. Taylor led the Mocs on their magical run to the sweet 16 in 1997. He was later taken in the first round of the NBA draft by the Orlando Magic. The former Howard High School standout was the first Mocs player ever taken in the first round of the draft.
