Two Mississippi State Bulldogs have united to lead the Starkville High School boys basketball program.
SHS head coach Greg Carter, who played for the Bulldogs from 1988-91, has brought in Darryl Wilson as an assistant coach. Wilson was a player for MSU from 1994-96.
Carter was an assistant coach with the Bulldogs from 1994-2001 when Wilson and his teammates made their run to the 1996 NCAA Final Four, so he's happy to join forces with him again.
"Greg and I really have a good relationship," Wilson said. "With both of us playing under coach (Richard) Williams, the terminology is going to be the same as far as how hard you have to play. All of that is critical.
"The most important thing is making young men out of these high school kids. Coaching is fun, but you really have an opportunity to mold and shape a lot of these kids lives."
Wilson's hiring was approved by the Starkville School District board earlier this month.
