Perron retained on 49ers basketball staff

Rob Perron has been retained by new Charlotte 49ers head coach Alan Major as director of basketball operations, the Observer has learned.

Perron was the only member of the basketball staff not fired last month because the DOBO position is administrative in nature. Major decided on Wednesday Perron would continue in the same role, sources said.

A former head coach at St. Andrews, Perron was hired as DOBO on June 15, 2006. He spent the 2005-06 season as an associate head coach at Pfeiffer. Prior to that, he spent three years (2003-05) as head coach at his alma mater, St. Andrews.

Good news. Perron is a class act, and Niner Nation is happy to see that he is able to stay!

Great move by Major, shows he knows quality people and is not simply trying to out his people in place. Should make the transition for the players a little easier as well.
