UT Permian Basin Men’s Basketball has rounded out their staff with the addition of Mike DuBose to the bench. DuBose has been an assistant coach at the college level since 2014 between the Division I and junior college levels.
“We are extremely excited to add Mike to our staff. He comes highly recommended from several people and we were able to watch him throughout the year and always walked away impressed,” said Head Coach Kyle Tolin. “Since our season ended our goal has been to improve the program and I believe Mike helps us do that. With addition of Mike and with Kris Johnson back we feel like we are headed the right direction and have put together a great Lone Star staff.”
DuBose spent last season at Howard College helping the Hawks to a 16-12 record. Prior to that he spent three seasons at the Division I level at McNesse State. There they made the Southland Conference Tournament twice. DuBose recruited and coached Sha’markus Kennedy the 2020 Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Year and holder of 15 individual program records, as well as Dru Kuxhausen the 2020 NCAA leading three-point shooter.
He also spent time at Chipola College and Southwest Mississippi Community College where he won a Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges State Championship at the latter in 2016. DuBose was an assistant coach at Potters House Christian Academy in Florida where he helped develop future NBA first round draft pick Udoka Azubuike. He graduated from the University of North Florida with a bachelors in sports management in 2010.
