Harried to be announced as next Lake Clifton coach Former Dunbar, Syracuse player replaces Moore

November 04, 1997|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,SUN STAFF

Herman Harried, who played basketball at Dunbar High and Syracuse University, will be announced as Lake Clifton's boys basketball coach at a news conference today at the school.

Lake Clifton alumnus and former European Pro League player Ronald Lucas will be the assistant to Harried and also coach the junior varsity, a source close to the situation confirmed.

Harried, 31, was a member of the 1982-83 Dunbar team that went 31-0, winning a mythical national championship under Bob Wade and producing future NBA players Muggsy Bogues, Reggie Williams and the late Reggie Lewis.

He was a key contributor to the 1986-87 Syracuse team that reached the NCAA championship game, and also played professionally in England, Greece and Portugal after graduating from Syracuse in 1989 with a degree in consumer studies.

Harried, an assistant at Loyola College last season, replaces longtime coach Charlie Moore, who resigned in September.

Moore, 55, amassed a 221-66 career record, including a 23-1 mark and a 4A state championship in 1994-95. Moore said he resigned to possibly pursue coaching positions at the college or professional level.

Harried brought hands-on approach to coaching at Loyola. He routinely dressed in a uniform and practiced with the Greyhounds' players -- running the floor and banging bodies with Loyola players much like he did as a collegian and during his five years as a professional.
