He served as the Assistant Director of Basketball Operations in his final semester, and was with the team when it claimed the 2012 Southeastern Conference Championship. During his time with the Commodores Goldman organized daily team operations, edited video, assisted with scout preparations/film exchange and facilitated on-campus recruiting visits. He maintained the recruiting data base for Vanderbilt.
