Former Clemson basketball great Terrell McIntyre is coming back to Clemson.

The star point guard for the Tigers, who led Clemson to three straight NCAA Tournaments and to an NIT Finals in 1999, will serve in the role as player devolvement for life skills after college.

McIntyre is expected to start in his new role on Aug. 1, and from what The Clemson Insider has confirmed through sources, he will travel with the team to Spain next month. Clemson will leave for Spain on Aug. 8 and will play several International games during its 10-day tour of the country.

McIntyre’s role is similar to the position Jeff Davis now incorporates for Dabo Swinney in the Clemson football program. Like Davis has in football, McIntyre brings a lot of experiences outside of basketball to the table as he hopes to teach and be a mentor to young men both on and off the basketball court.

McIntyre, who played at Clemson from 1995-’99, was an extremely talented point guard and was the leader of four Clemson teams which reached post-season play-including three NCAA appearances–under coaches Rick Barnes and Larry Shyatt during the 1996 through 1999 seasons.

He earned second-team All-ACC honors in 1997 and 1999 and third-team accolades in 1998. He was also named to the 1998 All-ACC Tournament first team and was a member of the 1996 All-ACC Freshman team.

McIntyre still ranks second in Clemson history in scoring with 1,839 points, assists (577), free throws made (396) and three-point goals made (259). He led the Tigers to a four-year record of 79-50 and NCAA Tournament berths in 1996, 1997 and 1998, as well as a trip to the 1999 NIT.

He also led the ACC in scoring as a senior, averaging 18.9 points per game. After leaving Clemson he played professionally for 10 seasons in Europe, twice being named first-team All-Euroleague and had his jersey retired by Montepaschi Siena in Italy in 2013.
