Jim Crutchfield
Jim CrutchfieldHead Coach Nova Southeastern University
Jim Crutchfield IS Division II Men’s Basketball. From his coaching colleagues, to his alumni throughout the country, Coach “Crutch” has the respect of no other out there. He does things the right way, with the right student-athletes who compete at a high level.

Taking over a team that finished 6-20 (3-15 conference), he guided the team to an impressive 17-10 (11-9 conf) record. A sign of things to come at NSU.

Before arriving at NSU, Crutchfield won 85.5 percent of his games in 13 seasons at West Liberty, which is the current record in Division II. Crutchfield built arguably the most high-profile Division II program in the nation. Having coached the Hilltoppers since 2004-05, he has amassed a career record of 359-61 (.855), which is the highest career winning percentage in college basketball history among ALL NCAA coaches who have spent at least 10 seasons as an NCAA head coach. That places Crutchfield in an elite class of coaching legends that includes Kentucky’s Adolph Rupp (3rd all-time), UCLA’s John Wooden (7th) and Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski (21st).

Sean Hanrahan
Sean HanrahanHead Coach / Warner University
Sean Hanrahan, a familiar name in local college basketball has quickly established himself as one of the all-time greats in Warner coaching history. He has reestablished the Warner program amongst the nation’s best as he has led the team to a top 25 national ranking every year during his time at Warner. Hanrahan currently has the second highest winning percentage (.627) amongst all Warner men’s basketball coaches while solidifying his name in the Warner men’s basketball record book as the quickest coach to 80 wins.

Prior to joining Warner, Hanrahan was heavily involved in all aspects of the Florida Southern program during his five years there, from recruiting to the highly successful booster organization, the Sixth Man Club. While at FSC, he helped the Moccasins to a 102-45 record, two conference titles and two trips to the NCAA Tournament. The Mocs were annually ranked among the top ten defensive teams in the country, in both scoring average and field goal percentage defense. Former Moccasin’s head coach Tony Longa credited his work in player development, individual workouts and strength training as one of the key elements to the program’s success during that time. He was also instrumental in bringing in several top recruiting classes.

Stan Jones
Stan JonesAssociate Head Coach / Florida State University
Stan Jones, the longest tenured assistant coach in the ACC, is in his 16th season at Florida State and 22nd as an assistant to Seminole head coach Leonard Hamilton. He has helped the Seminoles compile an impressive list of accomplishments including the 2012 ACC Championship, a school-record four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances (2009-12), a school-record nine consecutive postseason appearances (2006-14), the first two appearances in the ACC Championship game in school history (2009 and 2012) and 125 ACC victories.

His drive and determination as both a recruiter and a coach are two of the main reasons why Florida State is the third-winningest program in the ACC since the start of the 2005-06 season. Since the 2009 season, Florida State is tied for third in ACC Tournament championship game appearances and is one of only four teams to make multiple ACC tournament championship game appearances.

Jones is consistently recognized as one of the top assistant coaches in the nation and has worked tirelessly to help build the Seminoles into a consistent winner – into a program that is the third winningest in the ACC in the last 12 years. Jones has been on the bench for three of the Seminoles’ top five-winningest seasons in school history and helped lead Florida State to 95 wins from 2009-12 – the winningest four-year period in Florida State history. The Seminoles also set a four-year Florida State record with 43 regular season ACC wins and 48 overall ACC wins.

Lynn Bria
Lynn BriaHead Coach / Stetson University
A four-time ASUN Conference champion and Stetson women’s basketball’s all-time winningest head coach, Lynn Bria is in her 11th season at the helm of the Hatters.

Over the past 10 seasons, Bria has turned the Hatters into a formidable force in the ASUN. She has guided the Hatters to three conference championships, two NCAA Tournament appearances, four WNIT bids, two WBI berths, and seven 20-win seasons. In fact, Stetson is just one of four schools in the state of Florida to post as many as 180 victories since the start of the 2010-11 season.

Bria broke the program record for coaching victories with her 185th triumph on December 21st when the Hatters defeated Texas State 61-54.

In a historic 2016-17 season, Bria guided the Hatters to 26 wins and the program’s first-ever ASUN regular season championship with a 13-1 league record. Stetson ended FGCU’s 75-game ASUN home court win streak on Feb. 25 to clinch the ASUN title and capture the No. 1 seed for the ASUN tournament. The Hatters also made their seventh straight postseason appearance with a berth in the WNIT.

Stetson set single-season school records for highest win pct. (.788), best free throw percentage (.791), and best scoring defense (57.5). The Hatters were also recognized with votes in the USA Today Coaches poll and a No. 10 ranking in the CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major poll.

Bria earned ASUN Coach of the Year honors for her efforts in 2016-17. In addition, Brianti Saunders was named ASUN Player of the Year and Sarah Sagerer the ASUN Defensive Player of the Year. Saunders finished her illustrious career as Stetson’s all-time scoring leader with 1,975 points

Steve Clifford
Steve CliffordHead Coach / Orlando Magic
Steve Clifford engineered a major turnaround once before. Now the Orlando Magic hope he will do the same for them.

The Magic hired Clifford as their new coach, signing him to a four-year contract to help transform the franchise from a perennial doormat to a contender.

“I’m not betting on something that I don’t know,” said Jeff Weltman, the Magic’s president of basketball operations. “Steve Clifford has proven himself to be an elite-level NBA coach in addition to having great personal skills, player-development abilities [and] all the organizational bullet points that we had hoped to address.”

Clifford’s résumé includes a five-year stint on Stan Van Gundy’s coaching staff during the Magic’s most recent heyday from 2007-12 and a five-year run as the Charlotte Hornets’ head coach from 2013 through this past April.
