Jerry Michael Dunn (born May 6, 1953) is the head coach of Tuskegee University Golden Tigers Men's Basketball.[1] Dunn is a former assistant men's basketball coach at the University of Michigan, who held the title of Associate Head Coach.[2] He previously held the same position at West Virginia University, but followed head coach John Beilein to Michigan after the 2006–2007 season. Dunn served as the head coach of Penn State Nittany Lions basketball from 1995 to 2003.

Coaching career[edit]

Dunn is a graduate of George Mason University, where he was a player and assistant coach from 1977 to 1983.

After 13 seasons as an assistant under Penn State head coach Bruce Parkhill, Dunn served as the head coach at Penn State from 1995 to 2003. Coach Dunn led his team to its first Top Ten ranking and the 1996 NCAA Tournament. In 2001 he led Penn State to the Big Ten Tournament semi-finals and to a number 7 seed in the NCAA Tournament; Penn State beat number 2 seed, North Carolina, to advance to the Sweet Sixteen for the first time in over half a century. Coach Dunn reached 50 wins and 100 wins faster than any other head men’s basketball coach in Penn State history.[3]

Dunn served as an assistant coach on John Beilein's staff at West Virginia from 2003 to 2007. He followed Beilein to the University of Michigan when Beilein was hired as the Michigan head basketball coach. On December 29, 2009, Dunn took an indefinite leave of absence from Michigan due to personal matters.[4]
