Terrence Oglesby is in his first year as an assistant coach for the Carson-Newman men's basketball program.

Oglesby spent the last two seasons on the coaching staff at Clemson with Brad Brownell.  In 2018, he assisted the Tigers in making a trip to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 21 years. He was a member of the coaching staff on this year's NIT team. 

Oglesby had a stellar pair of seasons with the Tigers as a player before moving on to a 10-year pro career in Europe and the G-League. 

As a freshman with the Tigers, Oglesby averaged 10.5 points per game en route to earning ACC All-Freshman team honors.  He led the team in three-point shooting in both threes made (85) and percentage (40.5 percent).  He was the first Tiger named ACC Rookie of the Week twice since the 2004 season. 

He upped his game as a sophomore, taking Clemson to the NCAA tournament.  Oglesby averaged 13.7 points per game and once again led the Tigers in threes made, three-point field goal percentage and added in the team lead for free throw percentage.  He notched a career-best 25 point effort in a 98-87 win over South Carolina. 

Over the last decade, Oglesby has spent time with eight different European teams in Spain, Sweden, Italy, the Ukraine and Georgia. He also spent a year in the G-League with the Iowa Energy. 

Oglesby was born in Norway while his father Tony, a former Carson-Newman basketball player, was playing overseas and has dual Norwegian citizenship.  He played for Norway in the FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship in 2008.  He led the tournament in scoring with 24.4 points per game. His younger brother Paxton was a student manager for Chuck Benson from 2011-15. 

Oglesby graduated from Clemson with a degree in communications studies with a minor in psychology. He finished his Masters of Science in athletic leadership in 2019 from Clemson. 

Terrence and Maria Oglesby have two children, Damon and Harper.
