Former Georgia State basketball standout Rodney Hamilton has been head coach of the women's basketball program at Indiana Tech, an NAIA institution in Indianapolis, Ind.
Hamilton, a native of Mempis, Tenn., is one of the top players in Georgia State annals. Lettering four years from 1994 through 1998, he scored 1,515 points, handed out 535 assists and grabbed 212 steals in his career, all Georgia State records that still stand today.
Hamilton was twice named All-Atlantic Sun Conference, earning first-team honors in 1998 and second-team accolades in 1997. He was also named Academic All-Atlantic Sun Conference those two years, as well as Atlantic Sun All-Tournament in 1998.
He was the first Georgia State player to have his jersey retired.
After earning his degree from Georgia State in 1998, Hamilton played professional basketball for three seasons in Sweden, Switzerland and Hungary before beginning his coaching career, first in the high school ranks and now at the collegiate level.
He spent the last two years as an assistant coach at Southeast Missouri State.
Along with Hamilton, other former Panther players now in the college coaching ranks include Travis Williams, in his first year as an assistant coach at Tennessee State.
