Chrys Cornelius became a member of Brian Wardle's inaugural coaching staff on May 3, 2010. He came to Green Bay after spending three seasons as an assistant coach at Eastern Illinois University (2007-08 through 2009-10).

The Panthers posted 19 victories in his final season, the program's third highest win total since joining Division I in 1981-82. The 19-12 record also marked the school's first winning season since 2000-01.

He joined the Panthers' staff in June of 2007 after four years as an assistant at Florida A&M University, where he helped lead the Rattlers to two of its three all-time NCAA Tournament appearances (2004, 2007). Cornelius also coached the nation's leading 3-pointer shooter, Terrance Woods, who hit 139 and 140 3-pointers in back-to-back years and won the 3-point shootout at the 2004 NCAA Final Four.

Cornelius served two different coaching stints at Western Illinois, his alma mater. He first was a graduate assistant from 1996-98, and later was a full-time assistant for three seasons (2000-01 through 2002-03). The Leathernecks had the nation's seventh largest turnaround in wins during the 2001-02 season.

He also made a pair of junior college coaching stops. Cornelius began his coaching career at Joliet Junior College in 1995 and spent two seasons at Jacksonville (Texas) Junior College. In addition, he made a brief stop at Chicago State University in 2003.

A native of Joliet, Ill., Cornelius attended Joliet Catholic Academy, where he earned All-East Suburban Catholic League second-team honors. He was a member of the men's basketball program at Western Illinois for three seasons, and earned his bachelor's degree in physical education from the university in 1995.

He and his wife Jennifer have two sons, Chrystopher and Nicholas.
