Everick Sullivan, a former associate head coach at Eastern Kentucky, with 11 years of experience as a collegiate basketball coach, has spent the previous three seasons with the Georgia State Panthers under head coach Ron Hunter.

In his three seasons, Sullivan’s impact with the Panthers’ post players has been immense. In his first season, Eric Buckner blocked shots per game average (3.47) was sixth best in the nation as the senior was voted to the All-CAA Third Team and CAA All-Defensive Team after setting a school record with 118 blocked shots.

In 2012-13, James Vincent finished his career as one of the all-time leading shot blockers in Georgia State history, following in the footsteps of Buckner.

Then in 2013-14, he was able to take Southern Cal transfer Curtis Washington and transform him into the leading shooter in the Sun Belt (65.6-percent from the floor) and second-best shot blocker in the league with 78, the third most in program history. With his help, the Panthers won 25 games, the second most in program history, earned the Sun Belt Regular Season Championship and advanced to the Postseason NIT.

Before joining the Panthers in 2011, Sullivan spent three seasons with Eastern Kentucky and helped guide the Colonels to 53 wins during his stint, where he spent two seasons as an assistant before being promoted to associate head coach in his final season.

In his last two seasons with Eastern Kentucky, the Colonels were among the top 10 in the NCAA in 3-point shooting percentage, ranked second nationally in 3-pointers made (10), assist-to-turnover ratio (+1.63) and third in fewest turnovers per game (9.6).

Prior to his three-year stint with Eastern Kentucky, Sullivan spent the four years as a head coach while compiling an impressive overall record of 107-26 (.804) record. From 2005-08, Sullivan was in charge of the Vincennes (Ind.) University program and helped the Trailblazers advance to two National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) tournament appearances.

In 2005-06, his team was ranked the ninth best defense in the nation. He recruited and graduated 92 percent of all his student-athletes with 22 of his 24 players moving on to four-year institutions. In 2004-05, Sullivan served one year as the head coach at Lincoln Trial College (Ill.), where he finished with a 28-5 record. He was named Region and District Coach of the Year multiple times during his head coaching career.

He began his coaching career at Wabash Valley College (Ill.), spending both the 2002-03 and 2003-04 seasons with the program.

The native of Simpsonville, S.C., played collegiate basketball at the Louisville under Hall of Fame head coach Denny Crum from 1988-92. Sullivan played in three NCAA tournaments and is among the Cardinals’ all-time leaders in scoring (15th), assists (ninth), 3-point percentage (10th) and dunks (10th).

After earning a bachelor’s degree in communications, Sullivan went on to play eight years of professional basketball in Finland, Portugal, Slovenia, Poland, Puerto Rico, Cyprus and Lebanon. In 1998, his team won the Cyprus league championship and he was voted MVP.
Sullivan and his fiancee Michelle, have a daughter, Ellery, born Feb. 24, 2012.
