Steve Shields

In 2011, Steve Shields' UALR Trojans touched the hem of the NCAA Tournament. Their loss in the buy-in game capped Shields' eighth season as head coach, with a regular season record of 19-16 — a stunning turnaround from 8-21 in the 2010 season. Shields was an assistant coach at UALR for three seasons before being elevated to the top spot. He earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in education at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, where his father was the longtime golf coach.
