The 2015-2016 season is the first for Casey Coons as a full-time assistant coach with the Trojans and his third season on staff with the Trojans.

Coons closed a remarkable career on the hardwood for Taylor in 2012-2013. The sharp-shooting guard ranks second all-time at TU with 2,138 points and 439 free throws made, while topping the Taylor record books with 359 makes from beyond the arc.

The awards and accolades piled up for Coons during his four-year career, as Coons was a two-time NAIA All-American, a four-time All-Crossroads League Team selection and a Gates-Howard Award winner. Coons scored the 10th point in each of the four Silent Night games he played in and also excelled in the classroom, becoming the first student-athlete in Taylor history to be named as a CoSIDA Academic All-America of the Year recipient.

Coons graduated from Taylor in 2013 with a degree in health and physical education and currently resides in Upland.
