Cory Baldwin Named Head Basketball Coach at Waycross College

Clayton State University alumnus and former assistant men’s basketball coach Cory Baldwin has been named the first head coach of Waycross College’s men’s basketball team.

After spending the past three years as the head coach at Truett-McConnell College in north Georgia, Baldwin has agreed to head to south Georgia to start the Swampfoxes’ basketball program as part of the Georgia Junior College Athletic Association (GJCAA). Waycross will join the GJCAA basketball league for the 2009/2010 season.

A native of Jonesboro, Baldwin graduated from Clayton State in 2000 with a degree in Healthcare Management and three varsity basketball letters. He was an assistant coach at Clayton State for seven years, during which time he earned a masters in Instructional Education from Central Michigan University.

During his three years at Truett-McConnell, Baldwin compiled a 53-39 record, the third best record in the GJCAA.

In addition to coaching basketball, Baldwin will also serve as an instructor of physical education at Waycross.

A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
