Coach Shaka Smart is one of the most sought after young college coaches today! He’s a hot commodity and many big Division 1 Schools would love to have him as their coach. However, longevity and identity is what makes a program and coach successful. Coach Smart started his Division 1 coaching career at VCU in 2009. Since then he has racked up an impressive win record of 163 and 56 (.744). In just his first season, Coach Smart led the VCU Rams to a 29-9 overall record and 11-7 in the CAA Conference. That same year coach smart and VCU won the CBI Championship (2010). The very next year, coach smart led VCU to the Final Four for the first time in team history.
Once Coach Smart wins the ultimate prize (The NCAA National Title) his stock will rise sharply.
