Men's Basketball Assistant Coach Dennis Stanton to step down

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – Ursinus College head men's basketball coach Kevin Small has announced that assistant coach Dennis Stanton will be stepping down from his position to open his own business. 

"We thank Dennis for his time and effort over the last three years," said Small. "We are very grateful that he will continue to help with the program as he begins this new and exciting opportunity."

Stanton, a 2004 graduate of Ursinus, finished his career as the leading scorer in school and conference history with 1,903 points. That mark was broken in 2008 by Nick Shattuck.

During that 2004 season, he enjoyed the best individual season in the history of Ursinus College and the Centennial Conference. Named a first-team All-American by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and a first-team Academic All-American, Stanton remains the first and only male athlete in the history of Ursinus College to garner both honors. He was also named the 2004 Mid-Atlantic Region Player of the Year by D3Hoops.com. 

A national search for his successor will begin immediately. If interested, please visit our Employment Opportunities page by clicking here.
