Biography

Steve Alford played basketball at Indiana University, and made the 1984 Olympic team just after his freshman year. Alford led Indiana to the 1987 NCAA title and finished his career as the all-time leading scorer in Indiana history, with 2,438 points, a record later surpassed. He was a first-round pick of the Dallas Mavericks in the 1987 NBA draft, and played with them for three seasons, 1987/88, and 1989-91, also playing the 1988/89 season with the Golden State Warriors.

After his playing career ended, Alford went into coaching, landing a head coaching job immediately with the D-3 Manchester University Spartans of northern Indiana. He coached there from 1991-95 before moving to Southwest Missouri State University from 1995-99. His first big-time collegiate job was as head coach at the University of Iowa from 1999-2007. Alford then coached at the University of New Mexico from 2007-13, and in 2013 was named the head coach at UCLA.
