Jerry DeGregorio, a former assistant coach with the Golden State Warriors, has been added to Amanda Butler’s Clemson Tigers staff.
The school made the announcement on Wednesday.
DeGregorio has over 30 years of experience, most notably serving as an assistant to the Warriors from 2011-14. He does have level coaching in college, having spent four seasons with the Rhode Island Rams — first as an assistant coach (1997-1999), then taking on the role of head coach from 1999-2001.
As for the Clemson Tigers, Amanda Butler was hired back in April to take over for Audra Smith. Since then, she’s been recruiting and assembling a staff for her first season manning the helm.
Jerry DeGregorio, who graduated from St. John’s, is likely going to help in several areas moving forward, but the school did not announce a specific role.
Clemson went 11-19 last season and have not made a trip to the NCAA Tournament since the 2001-02 season under then head coach Jim Davis. Butler, who had a lengthy stint as the head coach of the Florida Gators, has taken her teams there four times since the 2008-09 campaign.
