Scott Sutton’s Release Ends a Family Legacy

The recent Oral Roberts University announcement by Athletic Director Mike Carter about the release of Scott Sutton as the University’s Head Men’s Basketball Coach came as a surprise to many Tulsa-area sports fans. For the first time in decades there will not be a Sutton coaching in Oklahoma.

“We appreciate Scott’s outstanding record, his loyalty and his long term service to the university,” said Carter. “He will forever be a part of our great history. We love Scott and his family and wish him the very best.”

Carter named assistant coach Rodney Perry as the university’s interim head coach. The search process is underway for a full-time replacement.
“We are grateful that we have such a quality young coach to assume the reins at this time,” said Carter. “We are excited about the future of this program.”

This coming season, ORU will return one of the leading scorers in The Summit League in senior  Albert Owens of Cedar Hill, Texas. Also returning will be the League’s Freshman of the Year,  Emmanuel Nzekwesi of Trophy Club, Texas. For the latest information on ORU men’s basketball, follow  @ORUMBB on Twitter or go to
