It’s always nice when good things happen to fellow Wolfpackers! Former NC State basketball player, Danny Strong has been named the new boys basketball coach at Fuquay-Varina High School. And, by the looks of things, there is nowhere to go but up!
Fuquay-Varina High School’s boys basketball team will have a familiar name sitting on the bench next season.
The Bengals have hired former NC State player Danny Strong as their next head boys basketball coach, athletic director James Mountford said Monday morning.
Strong played basketball at NC State from 1995 until 1997, averaging 12.4 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. Most recently he has played professional basketball overseas.
While playing professional basketball, Strong played for GET Vosges (France), Le Havre (France), Leon (Spain), Sidigas AV (Italy), Mad-Croc (Spain) and Gravelines (France).
In his last season, Strong averaged 10.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists.
This past season, Fuquay-Varina posted a 1-21 overall record, including a 1-15 mark in the Tri-9 4-A Conference. The Bengals failed to make the conference tournament and the state playoffs.
Fuquay-Varina will be a member of the new Southwest Wake Athletic Conference next season, which will be an eight-member league.
