RAYMOND — Hinds Community College’s Yusef Fitzgerald has been named men’s basketball coach of the Year by the Mississippi Association of Community Colleges Conference, the league announced Thursday.

In his fourth season at the helm, Fitzgerald has guided the Bulldogs to a 13-2 record and an appearance in the semifinals of the Region 23 playoffs. They were to play Northeast Mississippi Thursday night.

Fitzgerald has a 49-35 overall record with Hinds. He led them to a 16-9 mark in the 2019-20 season that was their best in more than a decade.

Two of Fitzgerald’s players also earned All-MACCC recognition.
