Speaker for May 26, 2015 Meeting – Barclay Radebaugh, CSU Basketball Coach

Barclay RadebaughFor the May 26th meeting, we will welcome CSU Basketball Coach Barclay Radebaugh as our speaker.

Barclay Radebaugh completed his tenth season as head coach at Charleston Southern in 2014-15. Radebaugh is the winningest coach in school history, the 7th winningest coach in Big South Conference history, and is one of only eight coaches to win multiple Big South Coach of the Year awards. He has directed CSU to Big South regular season championships and NIT berths in 2012-13 and 2014-15.

Radebaugh has an impressive coaching resume from a career that began in 1986 as a student assistant coach at East Tennessee State under Les Robinson. After stops at Wofford and Furman, Radebaugh began a seven-year stay at South Carolina.

While at South Carolina, the Gamecocks won the SEC regular season title and received a number two seed in the 1997 NCAA tournament. In 1998, the Gamecocks finished the season ranked 14th and received a number three seed in the NCAA tournament.

Radebaugh continued his success as an assistant at Winthrop University, helping the Eagles to back-to-back Big South Conference titles and an NCAA tournament berth in 2002.

Radebaugh then spent one season as the head coach at Queens University in Charlotte.

The next and final stop before CSU would be serving as an assistant coach at Miami. In his one season at the school, the Hurricanes finished 16-13, which was good enough for a sixth place finish in the ACC and an invitation to the NIT.

A native of Lincolnton, North Carolina, Radebaugh received his master of arts degree in physical education from the University of South Carolina in 1996 and earned his bachelor of science degree in business administration at East Tennessee State in 1987.

Radebaugh and his wife, Hope, have three children: Anna (24), Reid (19) and Sophia (16).
