Since joining the staff, the Bearkats have enjoyed one of its most successful stretches in program history, a run that includes three 20-win seasons and three postseason berths. The 50 victories between the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons are the most for the program in a two-year span since the 1971-72 and 1972-73 Bearkat squads first accomplished the feat, while the team's 89 wins since the start of the 2013-14 season are the most in a four-year stretch in program history.

Each of Mudge's seasons at Sam Houston the Kats have earned Southland tournament berths. Sam Houston reached the tournament finals in both 2014 and 2015 and the semifinals in 2013, 2016 and 2017.

Prior to joining the Bearkat staff, Mudge served as the assistant coach at Midland College for two years, helping lead the Chaparrals to a 63-7 record and back-to-back National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) national top-10 rankings.

Mudge was in charge of skill development of Chaparral guards at Midland for teams that compiled a 33-4 record and reached the national championship finals in 2008-09 and went 30-3 and played in the regional final in 2009-10.

He is a graduate of Stony Point High School in Round Rock where he was the starting point guard and led his team to a top-10 ranking in the state.

Mudge earned his bachelor's degree in marketing in 2006 at the University of Texas where served under head coach Rick Barnes with the Longhorn basketball team as head manager, recruiting assistant, camp coordinator and assistant video coordinator.

In the summer of 2005, Mudge was named manager of the USA National Basketball Team (Dallas and Miami, Fla.) where he assisted coaches and players in drills and scrimmages during the team trials. He also assisted in training sessions to prepare for the Global Games and other international competitions.

After receiving his bachelor's degree, Mudge was elevated to graduate assistant with the Longhorns. His responsibilities included player skill workouts, assisting the video coordinator, film exchange coordinator, producing scouting and developmental edits for the team, creating a video playbook and drills notebook for the University of Texas coaching staff.
