Hoskins Hired as Stillman Men's Basketball Assistant

Hoskins Hired as Stillman Men
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on August 16, 2022

Former Stillman College point guard Montego Hoskins is coming home. The 2018 NAIA Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.) Co-Defensive Player of the Year is the new assistant coach for Stillman College men's basketball, head coach John Teasley announced August 11.

"I'm excited we had an opportunity open up to bring Montego back to Stillman, a place that means a lot to him. It makes me feel good as a coach to see our Stillmanites want to come back and help strengthen the program. As a player, Montego went above and beyond as a leader on the court to help lay the foundation for our program. He has carried his winning mentality to Wallace Selma, and we're excited to see him continue to grow as a coach," Teasley said.

Hoskins, who helped lead Stillman College to a program-best 27-5 record, an A.I.I. championship and its first NAIA national tournament appearance in 2018, will succeed Devarus Walker, who departed Stillman in July. Walker served as Stillman's assistant coach from 2017-2022.

"First off, I want to thank God for this opportunity! I'm very excited about the new journey, I look forward to working with Coach Teasley. I'm also excited about being able to coach at my alma mater where I once played," Hoskins said.

A 2019 alumnus of Stillman College, Hoskins began his coaching career as a student assistant in 2018-19, helping the Tigers (27-6) to the Southern States Athletic Conference regular season championship in the team's first year in the SSAC.



Upon graduating, he was hired by his junior college alma mater, Wallace Community College in Selma, as assistant men's basketball coach and a counselor in the college's Educational Talent Search Program. Working with Coach Duane Evans, he helped coach the Patriots to a combined 63 -17 record (.788) and three trips to the Alabama Community College Conference (ACCC) Tournament over the last three seasons. Wallace won the ACCC South Division regular season in 2019-20 (25-4), including a pair of upset wins over then No. 14 & No. 19 Shelton State, and in 2020-21 (20-4) when it finished runner-up in the ACCC Championship / NJCAA South District Tournament in 2021. The Patriots were 18-9 this past season with a 1.3 assist/turnover ratio, the program's best since 2018. In 2021, Hoskins' helped coach the Patriots to 6.8 steals per game, a program best since 2015, his freshman year as a player at Wallace.

During his playing career, Hoskins scored 1,019 points in four years across two colleges. He came to Stillman in 2016 after two seasons at WCC-Selma where he recorded 487 points, 237 rebounds, 114 assists and 56 steals. In two seasons at Stillman, he produced 532 points, 220 rebounds, 159 assists and 64 steals. As a senior point guard in 2017-18, he helped Stillman rise as high as No. 8 in the NAIA coaches' poll. His 142 assists as a senior are the second-most by a Stillman player in a single season in the last decade, and his defensive presence helped Stillman secure the No. 1 scoring margin in the nation at 28.556 points per game.

A Birmingham, Alabama native, Hoskins led the Center Point Eagles, coached by Rodney Chatman, to the AHSAA 5A Boys' Basketball State Finals in 2013. He was also named to the Alabama North-South All-Star Game.
