Scotty Fletcher is a graduate of Petal High School, was a member of the Pearl River Community College state championship men's basketball team in 2002-03 under Coach Richard Mathis.
Prior to coming to PRCC, Fletcher served as assistant men's basketball coach under Steve Knight and head junior varsity men's coach at William Carey University.
Fletcher earned his bachelor's degree in Health, Physical Education and Recreation with a minor in English from WCU in 2007. He then completed his Master's Degree in Education from WCU in 2009.
Fletcher played his final two collegiate seasons at Carey from 2005-07. As a senior, Fletcher started all 30 games and averaged 9.4 points per game and led the team with 66 3-point baskets. He finished his career with 118 3-pointers made, which is fifth-most by a Crusader; his 38.9 three point field goal percentage is seventh in school history.
His coaching career began in the fall of 2007 as a graduate assistant at Ole Miss under Andy Kennedy. In his one season in Oxford, Fletcher helped guide the Rebels to a 24-11 record and Final Four appearance in the NIT, where the Rebels lost to Ohio State in the semifinals at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Fletcher then returned to WCU for one season (2008-09). During his first stint with the Crusaders, he helped Carey post its first win over a Division I program with a victory over Louisiana-Monroe.
In 2009, Fletcher took a position as an assistant coach for former Southern Miss coach James Green at Jacksonville State (Ala.) from 2009-11. In his first season at Jacksonville, the Gamecocks made their first appearance in the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament in five seasons. At the time, he was the youngest assistant in the OVC and among the youngest recruiters in all of Division I.
When Fletcher returned to Carey in 2011, the Crusaders had finished last in the Southern States Conference, but in his four seasons as Knight’s top assistant, Carey was 74-20 and earned back-to-back trips to the NAIA National Tournament in Kansas City, Mo. In his first season back at Carey, the Crusaders finished 23-8 after Fletcher helped Carey sign seven Division I prospects.
In 2013-14, the Crusaders finished undefeated in SSAC play, going 21-0, including three victories in the SSAC Tournament to capture the tournament championship. They finished 28-3 which stands as the best basketball season in the books at Carey.
As a recruiter, he signed seven players who were All-SSAC, and four who were named NAIA All-America, including first-team selections Jeremiah Dunnings, Donta Pittman, Troy Salvant and former PRCC standout Daron Bell.
Fletcher just completed his fourth season at Pearl River and has seen his win total improve every year and is coming off the best season since 2014 with an appearance in the MACJC and Region XXIII Tournaments. He is also a proud supporter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and was in charge of William Carey’s FCA when he coached there.
