Florida A&M Assistant Women’s Basketball Coach Fired After Arrest

Florida A&M assistant women’s basketball coach Terrance Chatman has been terminated by the university following his arrest. FAMU has issued the following statement:

“Today’s arrest of Terrance Chatman, Florida A&M University’s former assistant women’s basketball coach, concludes an investigation that was launched immediately after FAMU Athletics was contacted by a supporter. It was alleged that Mr. Chatman cashed a $5,000 check that was donated to FAMU’s Men’s Basketball Team.

“FAMU Athletics forwarded the donor’s claim to FAMU’s Department of Campus Safety and Security and placed Mr. Chatman on leave pending the outcome of the investigation. Mr. Chatman is charged with grand theft and fraud-uttering a false instrument in connection with the allegations.

“The University holds employees accountable for following university policies and procedures and has terminated Chatman’s employment.”

Chatman has been an assistant with the women’s basketball program since last season. He previously served one season on the FAMU Men’s Basketball staff (2013-14) under then-coach Clemon Johnson.
