Ronnie Enoch Joins Kern at Tennessee State

NASHVILLE --- Tennessee State University head coach Jessica Kern announced the addition of Ronnie Enoch to the women’s basketball staff.

"I couldn't be more pleased to add Coach Enoch to the Women's Basketball Family," said Kern. "As a multi-faceted seasoned recruiter, he brings value to us on both sides of the ball. His professionalism, work ethic and specific eye for defense is precisely what is needed to maintain a history of excellence here at Tennessee State University."

Enoch comes to TSU after serving on Kern’s staff at Mississippi Valley State University last season. He helped secure the program’s largest recruiting class and a spot in the top 25 most improved Division I women’s basketball programs.

Prior to his stint at MVSU, Enoch served as an Assistant Girls' Basketball Coach at Hillside High School in Durham, N.C. While there, he helped steer the team to a 28-2 record, regular season title, conference tournament championship and an undefeated record in conference play. Additionally, team was ranked #1 in the state by Max Prep for the majority of the 2015-2016 year.

Before that, Enoch was the associate head coach at North Carolina Central University (2012-2015). While at NCCU, he coached Tisha Dixon and assisted her in becoming a part of the 2013 MEAC All-Rookie Team.  He also assisted with Racquel Davis, who was named to the 2014 Third Team All MEAC.

From 2004-2012, he served as the associate head coach for the women’s basketball program at Johnson C. Smith University.

In 2009, his recruiting efforts helped guide JCSU to the program’s first CIAA Tournament Championship in school history in 2009. JCSU also advanced to the NCAA Division II Atlantic Region finals. 

The Lady Golden Bulls appeared in the CIAA championship game four out of the last five years and earned five NCAA Division II Tournament (2006, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012) berths. JCSU Women's Basketball posted a 162-78 overall record in his eight seasons on the bench (2004-2012).

Prior to coaching at JCSU, Enoch was an assistant boy’s basketball coach at West Charlotte High School (2000-2002) and an associate head coach for Parkland High School boy’s team (1996-2000). Parkland won the state championship in 1999.

He founded the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) DC Elite Women's Basketball Team and served as the head coach for two years (2000-2002).

A native of Burlington, N.C., Enoch earned a B.S. and MBA in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. He is the proud father of one daughter, Audrey, and two grandchildren, Jaidyen and Amiyah.
