  1. UNT is in the market for a new assistant coach after Bart Lundy, one of the original members of Tony Benford’s staff, left to take over as the head coach at Queens College. It was a great move for Lundy, who was looking to take a job closer to where his children live for part of the year. The departure of Lundy put UNT in the market for an assistant coach. Tony Benford likely knew for some time that there was a good chance Lundy would be headed back to where he started his career as a head coach. Benford said he was well into the process when Lundy left. Read more: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2013/07/unt-changing-assistants-at-key-point-in-recruiting-cycle.html/
  2. Now that Assistant Coach Bart Lundy is taking over the head job at Queens we wish him well. How about some thoughts about his replacement... Lundy was an X's and O's guy -- do we want to replace him with that or try for a recruiter like Shawn Forrest? I threw out Bubba Jennings.. left Tech recently and very close ties with Benford from his playing and coaching days at Tech. Probably had one of the best jump shots I ever watched growing up. Seems to be available although his ties to Lubbock are strong... Any other ideas?
  3. Bart Lundy’s tenure at North Texas was a short one. He stayed just a year before accepting the head coaching job at Queens in Charlotte. We talked about Lundy’s decision to head back to the school where he started his career as a head coach last night. The interesting aspect of how it all played out is that one of the big selling points for Benford when he took his first job as a head coach is that he could bring a pair of veteran head coaches with him to UNT in Lundy and Rob Evans, who is still on staff. So the question now becomes: Where does UNT go from here? It’s getting a little late in the summer for coaches to pick up and move. The name that a lot of people have brought up and makes a lot of sense is Bubba Jennings, a former Texas Tech assistant who played at Tech with Benford. Both Jennings and Benford are from New Mexico. Texas Tech just changed coaching staffs with Tubby Smith taking over the program. That put Jennings on the market.

  4. Bart Lundy turned down one opportunity to become a head coach again this offseason to stay with longtime friend Tony Benford at North Texas. The second chance Lundy received was far too tempting for him and his family to pass up. Lundy confirmed Monday night that he will be named the head coach at Queens, a Division II school in Charlotte, N.C., this week. Lundy launched his career as a head coach at Queens in 1998 and posted a 115-41 record in five seasons before jumping to Division I High Point. Lundy has four children ages 8 to 16 who live part time in High Point, N.C., which is just over an hour’s drive from Charlotte. Lundy turned down a chance to become the head coach at Clayton State in Morrow, Ga., just a few weeks ago. “It had to be the right fit,” Lundy said. “I was less concerned about coaching in Division I or Division II than I was in getting closer to my boys. I worked for the president and the athletic director at Queens.” Read more: http://www.dentonrc.com/sports/colleges/north-texas-headlines/20130701-men-s-basketball-lundy-to-leave-unt-to-become-head-coach.ece

  6. posted by UNTHOOPS on twitter Follow him there at - @UNTHOOPS The Language of Your Basketball Program This article was written by Bart Lundy who is an assistant men’s basketball coach at North Texas University. He was previously on the coaching staff at Marquette University under Buzz Williams and before the was the head coach at High Point University. Coach Lundy has 211 career wins as a head coach and has picked up a lot of basketball coaching experience over the years. Let’s “Green” the ball screen! Guard him as a “Rondo”! “On the line, up the line!” “Be white line committed!” “Flip the screen!” He can shoot and drive, guard him as a “Wade”! These are phrases that you may or may not understand but they are often said in our program. These are a few examples and we could come up with hundreds more. The terminology you use in your program is unique and ever changing. But do you document it? Do you put it on paper for your young players and your new staff members to learn? As an assistant coach, are you speaking the same language as the head coach? Having your own language is crucial putting your stamp on the mentality of your players and staff. Language is a powerful tool in establishing your culture, defining your core beliefs, and making sure staff and players are all on the same page. As a head coach at the age of 25, I never got the luxury of seeing how a lot of other coaches ran their programs. After 11 years as a head coach, I was fortunate to have the opportunity work for Buzz Williams at Marquette. One of the aspects of organizing the program that was important at Marquette (and one that I had never given much thought to) was the language used in the program. We are not talking about four letter words but rather the language we used to communicate our basketball knowledge and even the emotional aspects of the program. It was very important at Marquette and we have followed the same route here at North Texas to document the language we use. At Marquette we called it the “Words We Use”. This seems like a simple concept but it made a profound impact on how I look at organization in the program and made me pay attention to how we were communicating to our players and to each other. Young players are quickly overwhelmed with the physical and time demands that are placed upon them after leaving high school to become a collegiate player. Learning the language quickly is key for new players in your program to become successful and make an early impact in their careers. As a veteran player in your program, they will know exactly what you are talking about in all situations and will perpetuate the language as it becomes part of who they are as a player.
