Lon Kruger

Lon KrugerWhen it comes to building and revitalizing college basketball programs, Lon Kruger (CoachKruger.com) has few peers. From the small Rio Grande Valley town of Edinburg, Texas where he began his head coaching career at the University of Texas-Pan American in 1982 to the bright lights of Las Vegas, where he helped revitalize UNLV’s slumbering basketball program, the quiet and humble native of Silver Lake, Kansas has proven to be the master of the turnaround.

He is one of only four coaches in NCAA history to take three different programs (UNLV, Kansas State, Florida) to the Sweet 16 since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 64 teams.
