McKinlay Joins ASU Staff

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Robbie McKinlay has joined the Augusta State men’s basketball coaching staff, according to an announcement Monday from Jaguar head coach Dip Metress.

A native of Sydney, Australia, McKinlay played collegiately under Metress at Belmont-Abbey and helped lead the Crusaders to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances. He finished his career as the school record holder in winning percentage (.790) with 49 wins and 13 losses. He earned the Crusader Award following his senior season and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business management from BAC in 2003.

McKinlay began his college career at Coastal Georgia Community College in Brunswick, Ga., where he played two seasons for head coach Gerald Cox and earned honorable mention all-conference honors as a sophomore. He led CGCC in assists both years and helped lead the squad to the GJCAA conference championship.

“We are elated about having Robbie on staff,” Metress said. “He has a excellent understanding of the game and will be a valuable asset to our program.”

After college, McKinlay played one season for the West Sydney Razorbacks in the Australian Professional League. He spent last season with the Sutherland Sharks of the ABA Waratah League, teaming with former ASU standout Cameron Tovey to capture the league championship.

McKinlay replaces former ASU assistant coach Jay Newberry, who was recently named an assistant men’s basketball coach at Ball State University in Muncie, Ind.
