Jon Perdue will serve as the media relations assistant for 2019-20.
A 2018 cum laude graduate of Coker College, Perdue spent nearly six years working in the Cobras’ media relations department, starting as an intern when he was a senior in high school. The Hartsville, South Carolina, native spent four years in that role, moving into a full-time role as the department’s assistant director in August 2018 after his graduation. While working toward a graduate degree from Coker, Perdue served as the primary media relations contact for six sports and was also responsible for broadcast and public address duties at those sports’ home contests.
In January 2019, Perdue was elevated to interim director of the media relations department, giving him responsibility for game-day operations for Coker’s 25 varsity sports in addition to serving as the primary media relations contact for nine of them. Perdue will complete work on a master’s degree in college athletic administration in October 2019.
