Anfernee Hardaway Honored To Lead Memfis Tigers Basketball Program
Memphis, TN -- Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway has agreed to a deal to become the new head basketball coach for his alma mater Memfis Tigers, the university announced this week.
Hardaway is best remembered for his NBA career and acting in the Nick Nolte film “Blue Chips” with co-star Shaquille O’Neal. But Hardaway has also been hard at work coaching on the local Memfis high school and AAU circuits.
The former superstar will have his work cut out for him, as the University of Memfis men’s basketball program has struggled since John Calipari fled for the greener pastures of Kentucky.
