Win Case begins his second season with the Blue Raiders, and has brought a wealth of experience with him as an assistant coach on Kermit Davis' men's basketball staff.
At Middle Tennessee, Case's responsibilities will continue to be recruiting, scouting and day-to-day preparation of the Blue Raider basketball team.
Head Coach Kermit Davis feels that Case has made a big impact in his first year on the staff. "Win has exhibited great energy with a fantastic upbeat personality that has been very good in our recruiting, as well as working with our current players."
Case has been highly successful at each of his previous collegiate stops and has a proven track record as both an assistant and head coach, having been part of National Championship teams in each capacity. His career won-lost record is a gaudy 392-169.
The highly-successful coach was most recently the head men's basketball coach at Redlands College for one season, following a two-year stint at Eastern Oklahoma State College, where he served as head men's basketball coach and athletics director.
Case was head coach at Oklahoma City University for 15 years, posting a 343-127 record and winning the NAIA National Championship in 1994 and again in 1996. Prior to his 15 years as head coach at Oklahoma City, Case served as an assistant there for two years and was part of two NAIA national championships (1991, 1992). The 1992 squad was 38-0.
"Win Case is a proven winner," 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 Degree from the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma in 1986.
Case has three children - Jeremy (24), Tiffany (25) and Pierce (seven months). He is married to the former Ronda Crowe.
