I grew up in the Gulf Coast community of Robertsdale, Alabama, just across the bay from Mobile. I have been talking about basketball since I was barely able to walk (even when I could not pronounce the word!).
Not many people are given the chance to be a head coach at the college level, but I had that chance for five seasons. I also coached girls at the high school level for three years. Along the way, I have coached numerous All-American, All-State, All-Region, and All-Conference athletes. Many of these young people went on to become coaches and teachers…what a blessing it was to have a small part in this!
I graduated from the University of Mobile (AL) in 1993 with a degree in physical education and a minor in history. I was a competitive distance runner in college, earning NAIA All-District and All-Gulf Coast Athletic Conference honors in cross country and leading my team to three NAIA National Championship Meets. I also worked hard during the summers to earn my graduate and doctoral degrees in sport management from the United States Sports Academy in 1999 and 2005, respectively, after college while I was coaching at the college level.
I am married to the smartest, most beautiful person I have ever met, Candy, and we are coming up on our 20th anniversary in September. We call Lakeway, Texas, home but do a ton of traveling around the US. I also serve as an adjunct online professor in sport management for six colleges and universities across the country. I stay busy!
