Will Weaver joined Sam Houston head coach Jason Hooten's men's basketball staff this summer.
A native of Austin, Weaver helped direct the University of Texas Longhorns to a 103-39 (.725) record in his four years with the program.
Texas reached the NCAA Tournament all four of Weaver's seasons in Austin. The Horns produced three All-Americans and signed five McDonald's All-Americans during that time.
While at Texas, Weaver worked with four first round NBA draft picks and dozens of former Longhorns now playing professionally in the NBA, NBDL, and overseas. He joined the Texas program in 2006 as a graduate volunteer before being promoted to graduate assistant in 2007 and special assistant in 2009.
In 2008, Texas reached the Elite 8 by defeating Stanford in Reliant Stadium before losing to national runner-up Memphis.
He has also worked with the NBDL Austin Toros, the West Austin Youth Association, and at over 20 summer basketball camps nationwide.
Weaver earned his bachelor's degree in Philosophy from the University of Texas in 3 years while serving as an assistant coach and head freshman coach at St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Austin. He taught and coached at St. Andrew's in 2005 before coming back to Texas to get his Master's degree in Kinesiology the next Fall.
