Summey is a Catawba County native and Foard High graduate who went on to attend NCSU, graduating in 1997. At State, he served as head team manager for two years as a student and then stayed on two additional years as a graduate assistant for former Wolfpack coach Herb Sendek.

Since then, Summey was an assistant coach at St. Francis (Pa.) for two stints from 1999-2003 and 2013-15, at Queens in 2003-04, at North Florida from 2006-08 and most recently at Bowling Green (2015-20). He was also head coach at Bethany College (W. Va.) in 2008-09 and director of basketball operations at Miami from 2009-13.

Siddle, a former Gardner-Webb player, this spring left his post under Keatts to take the head coaching position at UNC-Wilmington.

Also this week, ESPN reported Steve Snell has been named State’s director of basketball operations and Chris Zupko will serve as his assistant.
