He led the Pilots to their most wins in a single season (20), their longest winning streak (12 straight victories), and their best start in program history (12-0).

After three years at Cal State Northridge, he transferred to the women's game where he began working at Loyola Marymount. He helped guide the Lions to a third-place finish in the West Coast Conference, a ranking of No. 26 in the RPI, and an NCAA sweet 16 appearance.
