    Pelphrey introduced as new men's basketball head coach, sets sights on what's ahead
    By Thomas Corhern, TTU Sports Information
    COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – It's been a hectic schedule the last few days for John Pelphrey.
    But as the newly minted Tennessee Tech head men's basketball coach stepped into the Hooper Eblen Center on Friday to be introduced as the Golden Eagles' 13th head coach, he wasn't worried.

    Maybe a little nervous, but not worried.

    "I was very excited," Pelphrey said. "I was nervous in a good way. I think a certain level of nervous is good, because it means something to you. This certainly means something to us. This is a new chapter for us. This is an opportunity to be part of leadership and help mold young men and be part of a community to try help build something that a lot of people want to be a part of. They want to see this place do well.
