Adrian Autry ’94 Ready to Make His Mark as Next Men’s Basketball Coach (Podcast)



Although the phrase “sports locker room culture” is frequently employed, the Syracuse University men’s basketball team’s student-athletes and coaches genuinely embody the spirit of a family.



And guiding the Orange men’s basketball family starting today when they play the University of New Hampshire at home to kick off the 2023–24 campaign will be a new, yet recognizable, face.



The next major coaching challenge for Adrian Autry ’94, a former men’s basketball standout who spent 12 years as associate head coach and assistant to Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim ’66, G’73, is to lead his alma university.



“A dream come true, this is.” “It means the world to me and I don’t take that lightly that Coach Boeheim stamped me [as his successor] and gave me his blessings,” says Autry, who graduated from the College of Visual and Performing Arts with a bachelor’s degree in speech communication.



When I discuss our program and my personal interpretation of it, I adore Syracuse, this location, and Coach Boeheim. This location was essential to my development as a young man. I learnt everything there and experienced everything, so they were significant years for me, according to Autry. I gained particular knowledge regarding loyalty. The men’s basketball program has the support of the Syracuse community, our university, and our supporters, and that loyalty is rooted in the program’s familial aspect. I’ve always valued this place’s familial vibe.



Over the course of his four-year playing career, Autry established himself as a fantastic defender and prolific passer in the school’s record books. He continues to rank seventh in career assists and sixth in steals throughout program history. After a fruitful playing career that saw him play in Europe, North America, and South America, Autry started his second act as a basketball coach, picking up teaching techniques from his mentor, Jim Boeheim.
