I've written four books. The 21st CENTURY ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN tells the story of how, one-hundred and seventy years after falling into an Arctic ice hole, Huckleberry Finn is discovered, thawed out, and brought back to life, unleashing his unique personality upon the 21st century. UNDERBELLY HOOPS is a memoir about my days playing professional basketball in the Continental Basketball Association (CBA). AMERICAN HOOPS covers the history of U.S. Olympic basketball. And BEFORE THE CURSE is a collection of vintage articles--with intros--about the Chicago Cubs. In 2006, I earned a Ph.D. in history from Purdue University, and, in 2013, an MBA from DePaul's Kellstadt Graduate School of Business. I'm the head men's basketball coach and a history instructor at Carroll College in Helena, MT. My greatest accomplishment is convincing my wife, Christy, to marry me. We have four kids, all of 'em gritty and sand-filled.
