Bobcat GA Coach Joins Sheridan Coaching Staff

SHERIDAN, Wyo. – Former Georgia College men’s basketball graduate assistant coach Dan Magrino has been named assistant coach at Sheridan College. Sheridan is a junior college located in northern Wyoming.

Magrino will join the Generals’ coaching staff after recently finishing his master’s in business administration as a graduate assistant at Georgia College (2008-09 and 2010-11), and spending a season as an assistant coach at Northern State University in 2009-10. During his tenure with the Bobcats, Magrino worked with the post players and also assisted heavily with recruitment efforts.

“I have been so fortunate to continue my coaching career here at Georgia College,” said Magrino. “Learning from coaches Terry Sellers and Mark Gainous has been a remarkable opportunity to better myself as a coach and as a person. The entire Georgia College community and staff makes Milledgeville a tremendous place, and allows for Georgia College Athletics to be something truly special.”

In his two seasons, he helped lead the team to a 38-17 record, as well as a 2009 NCAA Southeast Region Tournament berth.

Prior to coaching at Georgia College, he had his playing days at Northern State where he was a post from 2003-2008. The Wolves had a record of 98-28 during his playing career. Magrino double-majored in sociology and political science.

At Sheridan, Magrino will re-join with head coach Steve Smiley a former Northern State assistant coach. Smiley is in his fourth season at Sheridan, going 24-10 this past season.
