Sterling Davis joined the Glasgow Rocks during the 2006/07 season and after the departure of Head Coach Thorsten Leibenath, he took over the reigns as player/coach in 2007/08. Davis was the player/coach of the club for eight seasons and is now relishing the opportunity to exclusively focus on coaching.
“I am definitely looking forward to just coaching and focusing solely on the tactical side of things as opposed to both the tactical and physical side,” said the play-caller.
” It’s a weight off my shoulders and I am looking forward to the challenge ahead. I want to put a team together that will fight for Silverware – the city of Glasgow deserves it.”
Sterling Davis averaged 10.66 points per game (48% from the field) during his 9 season tenure at the Rocks as well as 5 rebounds and 2 assists per game. He played over 300 games for the Rocks and played more than 400 games during his illustrious career in the BBL spanning 14 seasons.
With the Rocks out of the playoffs for this season, Coach Davis is already looking at 2015/16. The club will be hoping to announce player signings during the early stages of the off-season.
