Liberty Head Men's Basketball Coach Dale Layer has announced that Myron Guillory has chosen to resign as assistant coach to pursue other career opportunities.

"It is with great sadness that we announce that Myron Guillory will not be part of the Liberty men's basketball program this season," Layer stated.  "Myron is a class person in every way.  He has been a highly accomplished and loyal assistant for me for four years at two different institutions.  He has made a decision that is in the best interest of his family in every way.  We wish him and his family nothing but the best. They are appreciated and will be sorely missed."

During his time in the Hill City, Guillory worked primarily with Liberty's guards, helping the Flames to 34 wins in two seasons. One of Guillory's pupils, point guard Jesse Sanders, earned top honors in 2011, becoming the first player in school history to be named Big South Player of the Year. Prior to coaching with Layer at Liberty, Guillory spent two seasons on Layer's staff at Colorado State (2005-2007). 

"I've been fortunate to work for a strong Christian coach and for a university whose mission is saving souls," Guillory said. "The relationships I've developed over the course of two years will forever be cherished. I'd like to thank Coach Layer and the athletics department for allowing me to work with a great group of young men who love Christ and use His gift of athleticism to uplift His name."
