In the 2005-06 season, the Mavericks cracked the top 40 for most of the season before settling for a top-60 finish. Rees' work ethic has made him a solid recruiter. In the fall 2000 season, Golfstat rated his freshman class as the first-year class having the greatest impact on its team in the nation that season.
Rees arrived at UT Arlington after spending three years at Texas Lutheran, where he helped lead both the Bulldog men's and women's teams to national prominence. After taking over the men's squad in September 1996, the team made three consecutive appearances in the NAIA national tournament, where the Bulldogs finished seventh in 1997, fourth in 1998 and sixth in 1999.

Rees gained Division I experience as an assistant coach at Louisiana State (1993-94) and as the assistant men's and women's golf coach at Arizona State (1994-95). The Lady Sun Devils claimed the 1995 national championship. Along with his coaching duties at Arizona State, Rees was the teams' recruiting and fund-raising coordinator.
Rees' first head coaching job came at his alma mater, Emporia State in Kansas. He was named the head coach at just 21 years of age, which makes him one of the few collegiate head coaches in history to have been placed in charge of any program at that young of an age. During his four-year run as Emporia State's head coach, Rees developed an NAIA and NCAA Division II top-10 program and was named the district's Coach of the Year four consecutive years from 1990-93.
