Basketball coach at the Division 1 level for 19 years. Jim began his coaching career as a coach with the Long Island Lightning Program. He spent 13 years as an assistant at Davidson College in North Carolina. Davidson played in several NCAA Tournaments during that time. Jim recruited many players that went on to professional careers, none more well known then 2 time NBA MVP Stephen Curry. Jim and Steph still have a friendship to this day.
Jim continued his career in Boone, North Carolina as the Head Coach at Division 1 Appalachian State. Jim built that program over his time there and rescued them from NCAA sanctions and put them in position to compete for titles in the very competitive Sun Belt Conference.
Jim has now returned to his roots on Long Island. Jim has been known as someone who has a knack for developing players – for finding that diamond in the rough and helping them achieve their dreams of playing basketball for their high school or college.
