Proctor joins Texas State Basketball Staff

Texas State men’s basketball head coach Terrence Johnson completed his staff with the hiring of Aaron Proctor, who will serve as Director of Basketball Operations/Assistant Coach.
“We’re excited to have Coach Proctor. He and I have known each other for a long time. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience,” said Johnson. “I believe his strong relationships in Texas will help strengthen our recruiting base within the state. Coach Proctor has made an immediate impact everywhere he’s been. We believe he’ll do the same here. We are happy he’s a Bobcat!”
Proctor arrives in San Marcos after spending the past two seasons at Lamar as the program’s Director of Basketball Operations. He spent the 2020-21 campaign in the same role at Southeast Missouri State.
“I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of what coach TJ is building here at Texas State. I’ve known TJ for a long time and I’ve always been an admirer of how he does things,” said Proctor. “To be a part of it is something really special for me and I’m looking forward to what this time brings for us here at Texas State.”
Overall, Proctor brings 17 years of coaching experience to the Bobcats, including four years as a head coach at the high school level and two stints as an AAU head coach.
Proctor took the job at West Plains after spending the 2018-19 campaign at Arkansas-Fort Smith. He joined the Lions after a one-year stint as the head coach of North Forest High School in Houston. His time at North Forest was one of three high school head coaching jobs which also included stops at Heights High School and Alvin High School.
For two years, Proctor served on staff at Kansas State as a graduate assistant coach. During his time with the Wildcats, they recorded 38 wins – including a 20-win season in 2016-17 – and advanced to the 2017 NCAA Tournament where KSU defeated Wake Forest in its first-round game.
A native of Houston, Proctor attended Cal State-San Bernardino where he played one season for head coach Jeff Olivier. During that season (2004-05), Proctor helped lead the Coyotes to a 21-6 record and captured the California Collegiate Athletic Association title and earned a trip to the NCAA Tournament.
He graduated from CSUSB with a bachelor’s degree in 2006. Following graduation, Proctor went on to teach at the high school level before returning to college to receive his master’s degree from Kansas State in 2017.
Proctor and his wife, Ashford, have a daughter, Harper.
