The Effects of the Frontline
K.C. Jones at Brandeis
In the podcast and video below, Jared Panson explores K.C. Jones' career and his lifelong love of singing.
K.C. Jones was a Hall of Famer, with one of the most decorated playing careers in basketball history. He won an Olympic gold medal, and eight NBA championships with the Boston Celtics. In 1967, he retired as a player, and four years later, he returned to the spotlight of the NBA, this time as a coach. But those years in between, while less publicized, may have been more groundbreaking than any others. In 1967, he stepped foot on the campus of the newly founded, political hotbed that was Brandeis University. Here he coached the basketball team for three seasons and ultimately, made history.
