Camp Director Mick Hedgepeth
Mick Hedgepeth comes to Berry after three years as Director of Men's Basketball Operations at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn. Hedgepeth, a 2012 graduate of Belmont, was part of a staff that won 77 games in three seasons.View Mick's Bio ⟩
Prior to joining the Bruins' coaching staff, Hedgepeth was the head coach at Berry's Southern Athletic Association rival University of the South. Hedgepeth had a record of 36-18 in two years at the helm, guiding the Tigers to a 22-7 record in 2018-19 and an SAA tournament championship.
Before joining Sewanee as an assistant coach, Hedgepeth began his coaching career at Williams College in Williamstown, Mass. The Ephs went 30-20 during his time as an assistant coach, where he was involved in every aspect of the program, including opponent scouting and recruiting.
Hedgepeth's return to the bench at Belmont was a homecoming after playing for the Bruins and legendary head coach Rick Byrd during his collegiate years. A 2012 graduate of the school, Hedgepeth was a major factor in 96 victories for the Bruins on the hardwood, including three Atlantic Sun Conference regular season championships, two A-Sun Conference tournament championships, and two NCAA Tournament appearances. Hedgepeth would earn A-Sun Tournament MVP recognition in 2011, twice was a Second Team All-Atlantic Sun honoree, and was the 2012 A-Sun Male Student-Athlete of the Year and a Lowe's Senior CLASS Award finalist.
Equally as strong in the classroom as he was on the court, Hedgepeth was a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-District honoree and also received post-graduate scholarships from the NCAA and the Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association. He would be named the DI-AAA ADA men's basketball scholar athlete of the year.
Hedgepeth and his wife Courtney (Guidal) are parents of one child.
