Gerry has over 20 years in the coaching profession and has assisted at St. Mary's, UC Davis, Colorado and USC.
He also assisted in the Continental Basketball Association. His coaching background sets him apart from most in the business because he's scouted and recommended players but also been on the other end of the equation -- signing kids to college basketball scholarships as a coach.
He currently operates some of the most successful and tenured tournaments and showcases in the region.
