Brandon Funk is entering his second year as an assistant coach with the Francis Marion University men’s basketball program. He also works in the FMU admissions office.
Funk earned his B.S. in sports management and athletic coaching from Georgia Southern University in 2012. He then went on to complete his master’s degree in coaching and athletic administration at Concordia University in 2014.
His extensive coaching experience includes a volunteer assistant coaching position at the University of Montevallo and assistant positions at Wallace State Community College, St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School, and Statesboro High School.
