Mark L. Macon (born April 14, 1969 in Saginaw, Michigan) is a retired American professional basketball player and current head coach of Binghamton University.


Playing Career

Macon was named Mr. Basketball of Michigan in 1987 following his prep career at Saginaw Buena Vista High School.

A 6'4" (1.93 m) 185 lb (84 kg) guard, Macon played collegiately at Temple University, alongside future pros Aaron McKie and Eddie Jones, and was selected by the Denver Nuggets in the first round (8th overall) of the 1991 NBA Draft.[1]

He played for the Nuggets and the Detroit Pistons in six NBA seasons, averaging 6.7 ppg in his career (and missing the entire schedule from 1996-98). Macon also briefly represented the CBA's Florida Beachdogs and Italian club Mabo Pistoia, while still contracted to the Pistons, and Oyak Bursa Spor Kulubu (Turkey), the Atlantic City Seagulls (USBL) and Venezuela's Toros de Aragua, from 1999-2001.

Coaching Career

Macon got his start in coaching at his alma mater an assistant coach at Temple from 2003 to 2006. He then moved on to Georgia State University for one year in 2006–07 before being hired by Binghamton University as an assistant coach in 2007.

On October 14, 2009, Macon was named their interim head coach after head coach Kevin Broadus took a leave of absence as a result of the Binghamton University basketball scandal.[1]

On April 28th, 2010 Binghamton signed Macon to a 2-year contract extension to remain interim head basketball coach. At the time it was reported that the head coaching position will not be filled with a permanent replacement until the school first hires a permanent president and athletic director. However, on February 9th 2011 the University announced that Macon signed a contract extension through the 2013-14 season and that the interim tag was being removed. [2]
