Andy McPherson
Position: Assistant Athletic Trainer
Andy McPherson enters his third season as the athletic trainer for the men's basketball team in 2014-15. He came to Clemson in the fall of 2012 after spending eight years as the head athletic trainer at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia.

McPherson's second season was memorable with Tiger basketball. Clemson scored a 10-win improvement and finished the season with a 23-13 overall record, 10-8 in the ACC. The Tigers advanced to the NIT semifinals as well.

He was tasked with overseeing the rehabilitation of forward Jaron Blossomgame, who suffered a compound fracture in his leg and redshirted the 2012-13 season. With McPherson's help, Blossomgame returned to action in 2013-14 and started 30 games at power forward.

In 2011, McPherson was promoted to an assistant athletic director's position at Hampden-Sydney. In addition to his athletic training duties, he assisted with fundraising initiatives, developed community outreach projects and supervised the student-athlete advisory committee, among other tasks.

His primary responsibilities as head athletic trainer included working with the football and men's basketball teams. He also hired and supervised a staff of assistants and interns.

Prior to his time at Hampden-Sydney, he was a graduate assistant athletic trainer from 2002-04 at Illinois State University.

McPherson is a certified athletic trainer (ATC) and an approved clinical instructor (ACI). He has been a CPR/AED instructor for the American Heart Association as well. He is a member of athletic training associations at the state of South Carolina, mid-Atlantic and national levels.

He earned an undergraduate degree in athletic training from Arkansas State in 2002. He earned a master's degree in kinesiology and recreation, with emphasis in exercise physiology, in 2004.

McPherson and his wife, Catherine, have three girls - Alley, Kendall and Mary Cate.
