The depth of the East Tennessee State men’s basketball team is going to come down to some decisions made by the NCAA over the next couple of months.
Jalen Johnson, a graduate transfer from Tennessee, has informed East Tennessee State basketball coach Jason Shay that he won’t be playing for the Bucs.
Daivien Williamson is returning to his hometown of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and transferring to Wake Forest, per his Twitter page.
A.J. Merriweather says he felt bad for the East Tennessee State players who didn’t get a chance to play in this year’s canceled NCAA Tournament. He certainly appreciates what March Madness did for him.
Bo Hodges’ time with the East Tennessee State basketball program is officially over.
Getting to 25 wins in a season is a magic number in Shay’s contract. That increases his base salary by $15,000 for the following year and automatically extends the deal for an extra year.
The NCAA Council reportedly voted Wednesday to allow athletes in three sports — men’s and women’s basketball and football — to begin returning to campuses June 1 for voluntary workouts.
A day after he was announced as the choice to replace Steve Forbes, Jason Shay spent several hours doing photo and video shoots. Then he hit the road on the recruiting trail.
Reports surfaced earlier in the day that Shay would be getting the job and ETSU made it official later when Scott Carter, the school’s athletic director, made the announcement.
Jason Shay will become the head basketball coach at East Tennessee State, according to a source close to the school.
East Tennessee State basketball fans are anxious to find out who their new basketball coach will be. The university’s president is urging them to be patient.

Steve Forbes was 130-43 at ETSU. His teams won two Southern Conference tournament championships.
It’s official. Steve Forbes’ successful tenure as East Tennessee State basketball coach is over.
