Moving from college to career:
When I finished my master's degree, I worked for a year at Texas Tech doing radio for the men's basketball team. From there I worked as an assistant men's basketball coach at St. Edward's University in Austin, then moved to South Plains college in the same position. From South Plains, I got the job I currently have, as the Head Men's Basketball Coach at Concordia University Texas. My undergraduate degree played a small role in me having these opportunities. However, my graduate degree is what has allowed me to continue to move up in the profession. To have opportunities to coach at the collegiate level in today's game, it is almost required for you to have earned a master's degree. It doesn't necessarily matter what you earn it in, as much as you just need to have one.
My father has been my main career influence. He was a high school basketball coach and had other administrative responsibilities at his school. I grew up in the environment and had a passion for it as a player and knew it was the route I would take.
