He compiled a 364-138 record in 16 seasons as a head coach and won two national championships as head coach at Oklahoma City University.
At Middle Tennessee, Case's responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, recruiting, scouting, and day-to-day preparation of the Blue Raider basketball team.
The highly successful coach was most recently was head men's basketball coach at Redlands College. Case was at Redlands one season and his team posted a 21-11 mark in 2007-08.

Prior to Oklahoma City, Case served as an assistant there and was part of two national championships (1991, 1992). The 1992 squad was 38-0. "Win Case is a proven winner, and he is a great addition to the Blue Raider staff," Middle Tennessee head coach Kermit Davis said. "He has won two national championships as a head coach and that speaks for itself. He is a tremendous recruiter, really understands the game, and has the best interest of the student-athlete at heart."
Case played two seasons at Seminole Junior College and led the team to a runner-up finish in the NJCAA national championship game. Following two years of junior college, Case played two years at Oklahoma State, where he averaged 10.7 points as a senior. Case and current Kansas head coach Bill Self were teammates at Oklahoma State and his son, Jeremy, was a member of Kansas' national championship team in 2008 and is currently on the Jayhawks staff as a graduate assistant.
Case said a phone call from Self stimulated his interest in the vacant position on Davis' staff.
"When I was trying to decide if I was going to pursue this position I got a call from Bill Self and he just raved about Coach Davis," Case said. "(Self) told me Coach Davis was one of the best and he told me I needed to look hard at the position. At that time the position had not been offered but what Coach Self said certainly appealed in terms of having an opportunity to work with a coach who has that type of reputation. Coach Davis has a reputation around the country that is second to none."
Case began his coaching career as an assistant at Oklahoma Baptist in 1987. He spent two seasons as an assistant at Eastern Oklahoma before joining the staff at Oklahoma City University. He earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma in 1986.
