CAMP DIRECTOR - GEORGE PITTS
Men’s Basketball Head Coach, King University

Pitts took the reins of the Tornado men’s basketball program in 2006 after a highly successful run of leading championship-caliber teams at Brentwood Academy (Brentwood, Tenn.). Before joining King, he spent nearly 30 years as a coach and administrator in the Tennessee school system.

In his first four seasons he posted 20-win seasons, combining for an overall record of 97-33. In three years as a member of the Appalachian Athletic Conference, he accumulated a 43-11 record (.796), finishing in the top-2 twice. His best season was in 2007-08 when the Tornado finished 26-8 with a 16-2 AAC mark to finish first in the conference. All three years that King was a part of the AAC, Pitts led the team to a conference tournament championship (2006-09) and qualified for the NAIA National Tournament.

Before going to King University, Coach Pitts was a head high school basketball coach in Tennessee for thirty years, compiling a career record of 820 wins and 211 loses. Pitts won seven state championships, two state runner-up titles, and three Arby’s Classic championships.

His seven state championships are the most won by one coach in TSSAA State Tournament boys’ basketball history.
