Early life and education

Born in Houston, Brooks played two seasons at Midland College from 1998 to 2000. Brooks helped the Midland Chaparrals finish sixth place in the 2000 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Tournament.[1]

Brooks transferred to Idaho State, where played under head coach Doug Oliver from 2000 to 2002. As a senior, Brooks earned Academic All-Big Sky Conference honors and graduated with a bachelor's degree in finance in 2002 followed by a master's degree in athletics administration in 2003.[1]

Coaching career

Brooks broke into the coaching ranks at the junior college level, starting as an assistant at Arkansas–Fort Smith from 2004 to 2006, including the 2006 NJCAA championship team.[1][2] Brooks returned to Midland College as an assistant for the 2006–07 season.[1]

In 2007, Brooks moved up to the Division I level as an assistant and recruiting at Bradley under Jim Les.[1] In three seasons at Bradley, Brooks helped Bradley advance to the final round of the 2008 College Basketball Invitational and win 20 or more games in two seasons.[3][1] In 2010, Brooks left Bradley to be an assistant at Sam Houston State for head coach Jason Hooten.[1][2]

After working four years as an assistant at Kansas State under Bruce Weber, Brooks left after the 2015–16 season for a similar role at Baylor under Bryce Drew.[4]
