Raleigh, NC –With the start of the new academic year rapidly approaching, there has been much talk within the sports community regarding which players will suit up where, and the leadership that will guide their talents. Among the talk has been speculation about where Coach Randy Pulley will be next year, and what that means for Word of God Christian Academy. A former Word of God graduate, Pulley returned to his alma mater as head (Varsity Boys) basketball coach last September, and led his newly assembled team to a 20-9 season. The success of his team carried into the summer, as top prospects, Josh Newkirk, Shane Whitfield, Donte Reynolds, Stavian Allen, Jaylen Robertson, and Youssoupha Kane all had impressive performances on the AAU circuit.

Rumors began circling, via social media sites, mid-July regarding Coach Pulley’s decision to leave Word of God, which had not been determined at the time. However, recently, Coach Pulley confirmed he is parting ways with Word of God as he takes his talents to Christian Faith Center Academy (Creedmoor, NC) this fall. When asked about his new home, Pulley responded, “My concern is, foremost, what is in the best interest of my players, and their futures, more than it is for myself. I have known about [Christian Faith Center] for years, and I am eager to build there, but it will not change the level of respect I have for Word of God and the Summerfield family.” He went on to say, “My departure [from Word of God] was an amicable one. I will forever be appreciative for the privilege and opportunity given to me [by Dr. Summerfield], and I wish them nothing but God’s best moving forward.”

And moving forward he is, as he prepares to take on a rather exciting and competitive national schedule at Christian Faith Center. Pulley will also serve as Christian Faith Center Academy’s newly elected Athletic Director.

To date, Word of God has not yet announced who will become Pulley’s replacement.
