Iowa men’s basketball coach Fran McCaffery announced on Monday that he has elevated Courtney Eldridge to assistant coach, replacing the position that opened last week when Iowa assistant Billy Taylor became Elon University’s head coach.
Eldridge has been on the Hawkeyes’ staff the past six seasons, serving as the program’s video coordinator from 2017-19 and director of recruiting and player development the last three years.
“I have had a relationship with Courtney for a long time,” said McCaffery. “He played for me at UNCG, has been on my staff, and has a great relationship with our players. He is a tireless worker, who has tremendous character and experience that will benefit our program.”
Eldridge played basketball at UNC Greensboro (UNCG) from 1998-2002 under McCaffery, followed by a 12-year professional career in Brazil, Poland, Italy, Belarus, Turkey, and the Dominican Republic. He was a high school boys basketball coach at East Boston High School and Saint Joseph Prep School in Brighton, Mass.
