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 NBA players Aaron McKie and Eddie Jones, and was selected by the Denver Nuggets in the first round (eighth overall) of the 1991 NBA Draft.[1]

Macon 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 to 1998). 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 to 2001.

Coaching career

Macon began coaching at his alma mater, Binghamton University as an assistant coach in 2007.

On October 14, 2009, Macon was named Binghamton's interim head coach, replacing Kevin Broadus, who was placed on administrative leave in the wake of the Binghamton University basketball scandal.[1] Two months later, Macon was given a raise from his $57,651 salary to an undisclosed amount.[2]

On April 28, 2010 Binghamton announced that Broadus would not return as head coach and signed Macon to a two-year contract extension to remain interim head basketball coach. On February 9, 2011 the university announced that Macon signed a contract extension through the 2013–14 season and that the interim tag was being removed.[3] On April 13, 2012, Macon was fired with a 23–70 record in three years at Binghamton, including a 2–29 mark (the worst record in school history) for the 2011–12 season.[4]
