He coached one First-Team All-American, four All-Region selections, the 2009 South Region and Gulf South Conference West Division Player of the Year and also recruited a GSC Freshman of the Year.
He also spent one season as an assistant coach at the University of the Ozarks. One player he signed was named to the American Southwest Conference All-Freshman Team and was a two-time All-ASC honoree, finishing his career as one of the top 3-point shooters in school history.
While in college at the University of Arkansas, he was a student manager and video coordinator for head coach Stan Heath. The Razorbacks reached the 2006 NCAA Tournament. While at Arkansas, he worked with a number of future NBA players, including Ronnie Brewer, the 14th overall pick in the 2006 draft by the Utah Jazz.
