A three year stint at NCAA Division III Shenandoah University preceded his time at ONU. His first coaching role came as a graduate assistant at NCAA Division I Valparaiso University. The highlights from his Valpo days were two Horizon League titles, two trips to the National Invitational Tournament (2017 NIT runner up), and ten players who went on to play professionally.View Austin's Bio ⟩
