APSU’s newest assistant coach comes to the Governors after serving 2012-13 and 2013-14 as director of basketball operations at William and Mary.

Previous to that Hogan spent two seasons as assistant coach at Florida A&M (2009-11) plus one season as an assistant at Tallahassee Community College (2011-12).

“Kevin is a terrific addition to our coaching staff,” APSU coach Dave Loos said. “He impressed me throughout the search process as a guy who is a grinder. He understands you have to answer the bell every day and stay with it. He has been around basketball a long time and he has been involved in his brief career in virtually every aspect of this business—from on-floor coaching, to recruiting to operations.”

Coaching basketball at the collegiate level runs in the Hogan family. His father, Don Hogan, is currently the associate head coach on Cliff Ellis’ staff at Coastal Carolina. He was the head coach at West Florida from 1993-2009.

“He has been around the game and around good coaching for a long time—his dad (Don) is someone who is well respected in this game,” Loos said. “What attracted me about Kevin is he such a great competitor—a guy who sticks with it and has a really good presence. It goes back to the fact he is ambitious, industrious and hard working.”

During his time at William and Mary, Hogan saw the Tribe enjoy one of the best turnarounds in program history in 2012-13 season—improving from six wins to 13—and roll up 20 victories in 2013-14. The Tribe advanced to the Colonial Athletic Association championship game in 2014 for only the third time in program history and finished the CAA regular season at 10-6.

William and Mary set school records for points, 3-point percentage, assist-to-turnover ratio and fewest turnovers, while ranking among the top 31 nationally in 3-pointers made, 3-point percentage, fewest fouls per game, field goal percentage, fewest turnovers per game and assist-to-turnover ratio.

Prior to joining the Tribe staff, Hogan helped Tallahassee Community College to a 15-13 ledger as a member of head coach Eddie Barnes’ staff in 2012. Prior to his time at Tallahassee, Hogan served on the coaching staff at Florida A&M from 2009-11 under Eugene Harris.

Hogan played collegiately at Rollins College, where he graduated ranking second in three-pointers made (270) and third in third-point percentage (44.0). He became the 34th player in Tars’ history to scored 1,000 career points and finished with 1,295..

Over his career, Hogan appeared in 129 games with 58 starts, while helping the Tars to three 20-win seasons, an overall mark of 88-34 and two NCAA South Region Tournament appearances. Rollins won Sunshine State Conference (SSC) regular season titles in 2006 and 2007 to go along with a tournament crown in 2006.

As a senior, he earned honorable mention All-SSC honors and capped his career, garnering SSC All-Tournament accolades. He was an All-Freshman Team choice as a rookie in 2006. Hogan led the SSC in 3-pointers made as a junior with 84, while connecting on 46.7 percent from long range. Over his career, he averaged in double figures each of his last three years at Rollins, scoring 10.9 points per game as a sophomore, 12.8 as a junior and a career-best 13.7 in his final campaign in 2009.

Hogan graduated from Rollins with a bachelor’s degree in political science in 2007, before going on to earn his MBA in finance from the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins in 2009. A Pensacola, FL, native, Hogan played at Milton High School, before enrolling at Fork Union Military Academy in Fork Union, VA, where he played for legendary prep school coach Fletcher Arritt.

Hogan replaces Bret Campbell, who resigned in late June.
