Ty Evans, a former All-American at Wisconsin-Whitewater and 10-year collegiate coaching veteran, enters his first season on The Plains as assistant coach. Evans, who was on Williams-Flournoy's staff at Georgetown from 2005-07, comes to The Plains after spending the last five seasons at Alabama.
Evans, a native of Beloit, Wisc., is entering his second stint under new Auburn head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy. Prior to going to Alabama, Evans spent two seasons under Williams-Flournoy at Georgetown. At Auburn, he will coach the point guards while also assisting with recruiting.
At Alabama, Evans coached the post players and helped his players earn All-SEC honors in three of his five seasons. He was also instrumental in coaching the Crimson Tide to a WNIT Sweet 16 appearance in 2011, the team's first post-season trip since 2002.
Also heavily involved in recruiting, Evans brought national attention to Alabama in 2010 and 2011 after securing top-20 recruiting classes both years.
Prior to going to Alabama, Evans served two years at Georgetown under Williams-Flournoy. He assumed every role on the Hoya staff, including a brief stint as recruiting coordinator. During those two seasons, he was instrumental in the recruiting and re-building efforts that would eventually turn Georgetown into a perennial NCAA Tournament team.
He began his collegiate coaching career at Saint Louis University where he served as an assistant coach during the 2001-02 season. After a season coaching professionally overseas, Evans returned to Saint Louis as assistant coach during the 2003-04 and 2004-05 seasons. He directed the Billikens' recruiting efforts during his time with the team and worked with the post players.
A 1995 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, Evans earned a degree in secondary education while serving as a co-captain on the basketball team for two seasons. He was a first team All-American for the Warhawks following the 1994-95 campaign. Evans garnered two-straight all-conference honors and led the Warhawks to the NCAA tournament twice. For his efforts, Evans was inducted into the Wisconsin-Whitewater Hall of Fame in 2010.
Evans spent the 1991 season at the University of Richmond before transferring to Wisconsin-Whitewater. That year, the Spiders won the Colonial Athletic Association Championship and went to the NCAA Tournament where, as a No. 15 seed, defeated No. 2 seed Syracuse in the First Round.
Evans had a professional career overseas, playing in Norway and Taiwan. In 1998, he won his team's Most Valuable Player award in Norway and was named to the All-Star Foreign Tour Team in 1996.
Evans, a 2012 member of the Beloit Historical Sports Hall of Fame, is married to the former Tina Perkins and has three children: Alexis, Matthew and Shylyn.
