WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) – Wake Forest Randolph Childress greats leave Demon Deacons’ training staff.
The school announced Childress’ move on Wednesday, with Childress saying it was time to explore “other opportunities” after his ninth season at Wake Forest as an assistant. He had worked under former coaches Jeff Bezdelic and Danny Manning, as well as current coach Steve Forbes.
The plan now is for Childress to work with athletics director John Curry and the university leadership on “strategic projects” that benefit the school as well as explore other coaching functions.
Childress – whose number 22 shirt is retired – is the No. 2 goalscorer in the program with 2,208 points and holds the Atlantic Coast Conference record with 107 points in the 1995 tournament, which ended with his first Wake Forest title in 33 years.
Childress went on to play two seasons in the NBA before a long career at the international level.
