Thom Becomes Davidson Hoops Director Of Operations

Billy Thom is the new director of operations for Davidson basketball, head coach Bob McKillop announced Wednesday.

Thom graduated from Davidson in May and has been a part of the Wildcats' basketball program since his freshman year. A native of Cold Spring, N.Y., Thom began as a student manager and became student director of basketball operations as a junior and senior. He worked as video coordinator for the Wildcats and helped with travel and scouting.

"Billy came to Davidson with aspirations of becoming a basketball coach as his father is a prominent high school coach in New York," said McKillop.
"He knows our system inside and out, carries Davidson basketball in his heart and is one of our own. I¹m very pleased he has joined our staff."
