Jordan VerHulst is in his fourth season with the Memphis program, moving to the position of video coordinator in 2012-13. In his new role, VerHulst's primary responsibilities are to oversee the basketball video department and break down tape that assists the coaching staff in its scouting. The previous three years, VerHulst served as the Tigers video manager.
VerHulst is a member of the Tigers staff during exciting times surrounding the program. Memphis is coming off back-to-back 25-win campaigns and consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. In addition, Memphis announced in February of 2012 that it is moving to the BIG EAST Conference for the 2013-14 season.
In his first three years, VerHulst was part of Pastner's staff that guided the Tigers to three-consecutive 20-win campaigns, three-straight postseason berths (2010 NIT, 2011, 2012 NCAA), two Conference USA Tournament titles (2011, 2012) and a C-USA regular-season crown (2012). Memphis posted 75 total wins (75-29 record) from 2010-12, making VerHulst a member of the winningest staff under a head coach (Josh Pastner) in his first three seasons in school history.
Last year, the Tigers posted a 26-9 overall record and earned an NCAA Tournament berth. En route to the "Big Dance," Memphis swept the Conference USA regular season (13-3 mark) and tournament championships. In fact, the Tigers made a strong surge in the final stretch to claim the league's regular-season crown, overcoming a one-game deficit to win the title by two games in the last two weeks of the season. The C-USA title sweep was the program's fifth in the last seven years.
In 2010-11, Memphis recorded a 25-10 record and won the C-USA Tournament held in El Paso, the program's first league tournament crown outside the Bluff City since 1987. The Tigers put together a magical ride in the conference tournament, winning the title with a thrilling 67-66 victory over UTEP on the Miners' homecourt. In VerHulst's first season in 2009-10, the Tigers posted a 24-10 overall record and received a National Invitation Tournament (NIT) berth.
VerHulst came to the Bluff City from Grand Rapids, Mich., where he served as an assistant varsity basketball and assistant junior varsity baseball coach at Godwin Heights High School. He also was the head coach for the Godwin Heights Middle School basketball squads (eighth grade boys/seventh grade girls).
VerHulst, a Grandville, Mich., native, earned his bachelor's degree in Business Management from Grand Valley State University in December of 2008. Prior to Grand Valley State, VerHulst attended Hope College.
VerHulst is married to the former Julie Durr of Memphis, Tenn. The couple is expecting their first child in October.
