Sheed taking over as boy's varsity coach at Jordan HS in Durham, NC.
NBA legend, and former UNC Tar Heels star, Rasheed Wallace has reportedly been named head coach of the boy's varsity basketball team at Jordan High School in Durham, North Carolina.
Sheed, 44, spent 16 seasons in the NBA after being drafted fourth overall by the Washington Wizards in the 1995 NBA Draft.
According to Rob McLamb of the Wilson Times, Jordan High School's director of athletics, Shelba Levins, said the following of Wallace's hiring:
"This is a special day for Jordan High School and our athletic department. When we seek leaders for our athletic programs, there are several different types of criteria that are important. We want coaches who can provide both knowledge and leadership with an ability to mentor our student-athletes as they cross the bridge from adolescence to the early stages of adulthood. ...
"It is not every day that you can add someone with as rich of a background in basketball, mentorship and volunteerism as Rasheed Wallace. I am thrilled to welcome him to Jordan and the Falcon family."
Wallace last played in the NBA as a member of the New York Knicks during the 2012-13 season, following a two-year retirement. The four-time All Star reached the Final Four with UNC in 1995 and won an NBA title with the Detroit Pistons in 2004.
For his career, Sheed boasts averages of 14.4 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. He was an assistant with the Pistons during the 2013-14 season, but this will mark his first adventure as a head coach.
