Terry Sellers, the longest-tenured head coach in Peach Belt Conference men’s basketball history, announced his retirement Thursday after 21 seasons with Georgia College.
Sellers, a four-time Peach Belt coach of the year, retires with 548 career victories in his 30-year college career as a head coach, including 350 wins with the Bobcats. He has coached Georgia College in all but three of its seasons since joining NCAA Division II.
“I am grateful for the opportunity that I have had to coach at Georgia College for the past 21 years,” Sellers said in a release. “I want to thank all the assistant coaches, student-managers and student-athletes for their dedication and hard work. They will always hold a special place in the hearts of the Sellers family. In retirement, I look forward to being able to spend more time with family and grandchildren.”
Sellers led Georgia College to four Peach Belt regular-season titles and two tournament titles. The Bobcats had eight 20-win seasons during his tenure, including five straight from 2005 to 2010. His teams made six trips to the NCAA tournament.
“Terry’s accomplishments on the court speak for themselves,” Georgia College athletics director Wendell Staton said. “Where his legacy is felt even greater is in touching the lives of the hundreds of student-athletes that have been fortunate to be on one of his teams. The impact those men have on their respective communities and the families they have built are a direct reflection of their time under Terry’s tutelage. I’m excited for Terry and his wife Cathy as they look forward to the next chapter in their lives and enjoying their beautiful grandkids.”
