Lucas McKay has been hired as an assistant director of video services within the men's basketball program. Head Coach Brad Brownell made the announcement Monday. McKay comes to Tigertown after serving as Brownell's administrative assistant at Wright State the past three seasons.
"I've known Lucas since he was 17 years old, when he was a manager for me at UNC Wilmington," Brownell said. "He's an incredibly hard worker. He's a guy who's used to putting in 16-hour days. He's a behind-the-scenes kind of guy. He helped me with my day-to-day dealings at Wright State. He's very good with video, and he's got a great feel for basketball. He's hungry to learn and move up in this profession. He's from Raleigh and he loves the ACC. He's unbelievably appreciative of the opportunity to be here at Clemson."
McKay worked under Brownell as a student manager at UNC Wilmington from 2003-06. He was a manager on Brownell's last team at UNC Wilmington, the 2005-06 squad that went 25-8 and won the Colonial Athletic Association championship en route to an NCAA Tournament appearance. The Seahawks compiled a 59-33 record while McKay was a manager with the team.
"Being a Raleigh native, I grew up around ACC basketball," McKay said. "To have the opportunity to be in the ACC with Coach Brownell is a great honor. We're excited about the opportunity to take Clemson basketball to the next level."
McKay earned his undergraduate degree in political science from UNC Wilmington in December of 2006. He has worked several regional and national camps, including ones at Clemson, as a coach and administrator. After graduation, he spent one year as an assistant coach at Harrells Christian Academy before rejoining Brownell at Wright State in 2007.
He worked as an administrative assistant under Brownell at Wright State. In three seasons with the Raider program, Brownell's teams put together an overall record of 61-35. McKay oversaw the day-to-day organization of the basketball office. His duties included supervision of the managerial staff, organizing recruiting mailouts, arranging travel and video editing. He earned his master's degree in student affairs in higher education from Wright State in June of 2009.
McKay is married to the former Lindsay Martin of Newton, NC.
