Virginia Union men’s basketball coach Jay Butler was named CIAA Men’s Basketball Coach of the Year.
Butler led the Panthers to a 22-6 overall record and a 12-4 mark in the CIAA, which was good for the program’s second consecutive Northern Division championship.
In his eight seasons at Virginia Union, Butler has compiled a 138-72 overall record and 80-32 record in the CIAA.
Virginia Union, which has 11 of their last 13 contests to end the regular season, entered the CIAA Tournament as the top seed.
I think this Coach is one of the most underrated Coaches in DII, He was one heck of a talent when he was in uniform and as you can see his Coaching knowledge has proven it all. Coach Butler cares, he’s respected by all, loved by his players and the school! I wish him well and hopefully he can get one of those D-I coaching spots like a MD VA NC.
