"I am pleased with our hire of Jerrod Stanford," stated head coach Sean Gillespie after the hire or Stanford. "I met Jerrod about five years ago when he was an assistant with the Sterling College Women's program and I was impressed with his persistence in recruiting and his overall passion and knowledge of basketball. He knows the game of basketball and is a good teacher of the game. He is a great addition for us and our staff and our student/athletes will enjoy what he has to offer."
"I am really excited for the opportunity to coach here at Union College," commented Jerrod Stanford."I appreciate the athletic director Darin Wilson and Coach Sean Gillespie giving me the opportunity to come in and be a part of the college."
