I started my basketball coaching career in 1983, with a goal of becoming a head coach at the DI level. As a 22 year old kid, I was fortunate to have George Raveling as my first boss. As I reflect back on the lessons he taught each one of his players, assistant coaches, managers and all of the people who surrounded our program, I realize how lucky I was!
In 2000 my career changed paths, and I had the good fortune to move into the NBA as a scout for the Washington Wizards. I have another great mentor, Leonard Hamilton, to thank for taking me with him when he left the University of Miami to go to the Wizards.
