A little more than a month after losing its coach to a conference foe, St. Aug basketball has a new face with Division I experience. Tony Sheals was named St. Augustine’s University’s latest basketball coach on Tuesday. The former Florida A&M head coach replaces Lonnie Blow, who left in July to take over at Virginia State.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js“We are excited to add Coach Sheals to our athletic family,” St. Aug Athletic Director George Williams said. “He is a veteran coach who will lead an outstanding group of players this season.”

Sheals will take over a St. Aug team which finished 16-12 overall last season, but only five returning players.

Sheal’s served as both head coach for the MEAC’s Bethune-Cookman (94-97) and Delaware State (2000). He most recently served as an assistant at Florida A&M. “It is a tremendous opportunity and honor to represent the Falcon community. I look forward to coaching in the CIAA and leading our program to success.”
