MBB: Ogden announces coaching staff

May 16, 2018

ARLINGTON, Texas -- UT Arlington men's basketball coach Chris Ogden has finalized his first coaching staff as a head coach with the appointment of Riley Davis, Royce Johnson and Greg Young as assistant coaches.

"I'm thrilled we have put together such an outstanding coaching staff," said Ogden. "The moment I accepted the position as head coach at UTA, I immediately went to work to attract coaches who share the same vision for excellence. We have put together an experienced staff with exceptional pedigrees. As a group, we are prepared to execute our shared vision and work to make UTA men's basketball a championship program year-in and year-out."

Ogden and his staff own more than 75 years of leadership experience at a variety of levels, including youth, high school, junior college, NCAA Division I and professional basketball.

Young will be entering his second consecutive term with the Mavericks and owns significant experience in various Texas high school, junior college and Division I basketball programs. Davis returns to his home state following a pair of seasons on the basketball staff at the University of Tennessee. Johnson led Dallas' Kimball High School to three championships in seven total trips to the Texas UIL state tournament and is a member of, arguably, one of the most successful basketball coaching families in the state of Texas.
