Brooks Savage came on board at Chattanooga in June 2013 as director of basketball operations. He moved into his current role as assistant coach in September 2014. He joined Will Wade from Presbyterian where he was an assistant coach for the Blue Hose.

Brooks has experience in many areas from in-game coaching to video preparation/scouting to recruiting to player development. He not only brings coaching chops to the Mocs program, he also knows the area well as a former student and graduate assistant at Tennessee.

“Brooks was a full-time assistant before coming here in the ops role,” Wade said. “He has the energy and enthusiasm for our student-athletes and program that you want in an assistant. We are excited about his ability to hit the ground running with our team and in recruiting.”

Savage has two years of coaching experience as well as another three on the DI level in more of a support role. Prior to serving as an assistant at PC, he spent the 2011-12 campaign on the bench at Northwest Florida State College, a two-year school in Niceville. He aided the program to an NJCAA national runner-up finish with a 32-2 mark with a squad that included 11 future DI signees.

Before getting his on-the-floor opportunities, Savage worked with the staffs at Tulane (2010-11) and Tennessee (2009-10) for three seasons. He was the Coordinator of Video/Player Development with the Green Wave and graduate assistant with his alma mater to start his post-graduate career.

The Vols won 49 games and made an Elite Eight appearance in 2010 in his two years as a grad assistant. He was a student assistant at Tennessee in his undergraduate years. He earned both his bachelor’s (2008) and master’s (2010) degrees in Sports Management in Knoxville. He was a part of five straight NCAA Tourney appearances with three Sweet 16’s to go with the Elite Eight run.

Savage helped create the “OUTLIVE – Tennessee Fights to Beat Cancer” fundraising initiative. Inspired by Chris Lofton’s courageous and successful battle with cancer during the 2008 season, OUTLIVE raised money for cancer screenings and early diagnosis on behalf of the UT Medical Center and the UT Cancer Institute. It accumulated nearly $500,000 in three years.

A native of Columbia, S.C., he played at Irmo High School for legendary coach Tim Whipple.
