Coach Harris brings a wealth of experience to our camp with championship experience as a player and coach in NCAA Division I and II. Harris was named the new head men’s basketball coach at Dominican University of California on May 17, 2011 with a goal to develop excellence and allow student-athletes to maximize their full potential on and off the court.
“I love this game and realize the only way to play it is hard, play as a team and take pride in getting defensive stops,” Coach Harris says. “I want my team to wear their PPE — Pride, Passion, and Enthusiasm.”Read Full Bio
Harris, a member of the University of San Francisco Dons’ NCAA Division I tournament team in 1998, came to Dominican after spending the previous two seasons as the top assistant coach for NCAA Div. II perennial powerhouse Metro State in Denver.
In his two seasons at Metro State, Harris helped the Roadrunners to a 46-15 record and two NCAA Div. II appearances. During the 2010-11 season, Metro State lost by four points in the NCAA Central Region semifinals to top-seeded Minnesota State on Mavericks’ home floor in Mankato. Minnesota State (28-5) lost to eventual NCAA Div. II tournament champion Bellarmine in the NCAA Div. II Elite Eight.
“I think Dominican will be very pleased with Booker Harris. He’s a fantastic coach, recruiter and an even better person. I look forward to seeing him turn Dominican’s program around,” said Brannon Hayes, the Metro State head coach who hired Harris.
Metro State, which won NCAA national titles in 2000 and 2002, is the winningest men’s basketball program in NCAA Div. II history. The Roadrunners have an all-time NCAA tournament record of 30-13 in 15 trips. Metro State currently has 13 players competing in professional basketball in the United States and abroad.
