McCready will join Pitts in his first year as the coach of the Golden Eagle men’s program in 2019-20.

McCready has spent years as an assistant coach, most recently serving two years on the bench next to Pitts at Centenary. From 2017-19 he assisted in recruiting, practice coordination, film study, advance scouting and game-planning for the Cyclones. He was also in charge of monitoring the team’s academic progress.

Before joining Pitts at Centenary, McCready held a number of various coaching positions. From 2016-17 he was the basketball video coordinator for Lehigh, where he was responsible for all aspects of film breakdown and analysis including practices, games and recruit film. In 2015-16 he served as an assistant coach at USciences in Philadelphia and in 2015 was a volunteer assistant at Kutztown. McCready also spent two years as a volunteer assistant at Freedom High School, and in 2014 was a basketball operations intern for the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets.

McCready earned a Bachelor of Science in Leisure and Sport Studies from Kutztown in 2014, and was also a member of the men’s basketball team. He transferred to Kutztown in 2012 and played there before suffering a career-ending injury in the fall of 2013.
