WEBSITE UPDATE: June 15, 2023: 

By: Matt Ferrell

Due to potential conflicts of interest between Rush players and my responsibilities as a high school coach in Smith County, I will be turning over the duties of Program Director for Tennessee Rush to Coach Layne Bussell. It has recently came to my attention that being a program director of a high school AAU program could negatively impact our Rush players at the high school level. In an effort to ensure the best possible experience for all the student-athletes in our program, Coach Bussell will take over as director immediately.

I will still be coaching teams in the Rush program (for which I do not currently have players on my High School team--same as I am currently doing as far as teams coached), and will still be involved in coaching and growing some of the younger age groups (3-8) as well. 

When I started the Rush program in 2009, my goal was to provide an opportunity for players to play high level travel basketball on a team made up primarily of players that would live and grow up relatively close together. My goal was to help as many student-athletes as possible achieve their goal of playing college basketball, and that goal remains the same today. This move is to protect the players currently playing for us, as well as those that will play for Rush in the future.
