Benford sees Shelton as a home run hire, hoops tidbits


Recommended Posts

UNT men’s basketball coach Tony Benford recently rounded out his coaching staff with the addition of director of operations Todd Shelton.

We touched on Shelton joining the staff briefly earlier today.

Here’s a link to the story that will be in tomorrow’s paper, where I had some time/space to delve a little more into Shelton’s background.

The interesting aspect of the story is Shelton has some ties to UNT, mostly from Johnny Jones’ tenure with the Mean Green. Shelton drove up to Denton to ask in person if he could work one of Jones’ camps after he finished his playing career at Texas Wesleyan.

Shelton also nearly took a grad assistant job at UNT before St. John’s came calling and offered to pay his tuition.

Shelton’s brother Terry Shelton played at UNT during the Mean Green’s four-year run run as Sun Belt Conference champions from 2001-04. He didn’t play a lot, but he is in some of the old media guides in my files.
