Liberty Head Men's Basketball Coach Dale Layer announced that Myron Guillory will join his staff as an assistant coach.

This will be Guillory's second stint working under Layer, after spending two seasons together at Colorado State. Guillory returns to coaching, after spending two years in the family business in his hometown of Lake Charles, La.
"Myron played collegiately at Virginia Tech and has roots in this area," said Layer. "He has recruited this region extensively, we worked together at Colorado State and there are a lot of great reasons to add Myron to our staff. He brings stability, hard work, a great feel for the game and we are very fortunate to have him as part of the Flames coaching staff."

Guillory was a standout basketball player for Virginia Tech during the mid-90s, helping the Hokies to the 1995 NIT Championship and the 1996 NCAA Tournament second round. While playing with the Hokies, he led Virginia Tech to its highest ranking in school history (8th) in 1996 and helped the team to a school-record 25 wins in 1995.

"It was very easy to accept this position after working on Coach Layer's staff at Colorado State," commented Guillory. "Coach Layer is a man of character and is a coach who is a tireless worker, and committed to the program, players, coaches and their families. It is a privilege to be a part of this great university and athletics program. I am very excited about reuniting with Coach Layer. He is an experienced and formidable coach, but more importantly, he truly lives by the Christian mission of Liberty University. This is indeed an exciting day for me and my family."

Guillory's coaching resume began at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, La., where he was an assistant coach for the Colonels while handling recruitment, travel and film exchange.
Following his time at NSU, Guillory served as an AAU head coach for the Boo Williams Summer League, where his duties included fundraising efforts for the league.

In 2002, Myron received a coaching position at Campbell University in Buies Creek, N.C., where he spent three years. While at Campbell, his focus was on recruiting, scouting, instruction and overseeing team academia. He was also a coordinator for basketball camps for the Camels.
Guillory has a solid academic background as well, earning a bachelor of science degree in accounting from Virginia Tech and an MBA from Nicholls State.

Myron and his wife, Courtney (Ottley), are the proud parents of a son, Mason Chase, who turns four in July.
