Darryl Slack was hired as the head men's basketball coach for Point University on May 6, 2016. and begins his second season in West Point in 2017-18.   The Skyhawks posted just two victories during Slack's first season, but Point did lose six of their conference games by 10 or fewer points and lost its first-round game in the AAC Tournament by just five.

 

Prior to coming to Point, Slack most recently spent three seasons at NCAA Division II Pfeiffer University in Misenheimer, N.C., first as a top assistant coach and then as an associate head coach. In his second season with the Falcons (2014-15), Slack helped lead Pfeiffer to its first confernce tournament semifinals appearance in five years as the team finished the season with a 16-12 record and an 11-9 mark in conference play.  The 16 overall wins was a 10-win improvement from the previous season.

 

Under Slack's guidance the Falcons finished second in NCAA Division II in field goal percentage defense, sixth in blocked shots per game and 15th in rebounds per game.  During the 2015-16 season, Slack helped guide Pfeiffer to 10 conference wins and its second consecutive Conference Carolinas Tournament appearance.

 

Prior to his time at Pfeiffer, Slack was an assistant coach for NCAA Division I Kennesaw State University for one season and a graduate assistant for two seasons at NCAA Division I Georgia Institute of Technology. Slack's duties at Kennesaw State included the coordination of team community service, travel and film exchange, scouting upcoming opponents and assisting in recruiting and on-court coaching.  During his two seasons with Georgia Tech, Slack assisted in the day-to-day operations of the basketball office such as film editing and scout preparation, while also aiding the in-practice and skill workouts.

 

Slack was a two-time All-Mid South Conference selection while playing at NAIA Division I West Virginia Tech.  He totaled over 1,000 career points with the Golden Bears, and averaged 15 points per game as a senior while shooting 44.3% from the three-point line. Slack earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education from West Virginia Tech in 2010 and went on to earn a master's degree in Sports Management from West Virginia University in 2011.

 

An Atlanta native, Slack played high school basketball at Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy alongside eight-time NBA All-Star Dwight Howard, who now plays for the Charlotte Hornets, and current Point coaching colleague, Tory Wooley.
