In 1993, as a part of the Bosnian Junior National Basketball Team I moved to Chicago to play high school basketball. Afterwards, I played college and professional basketball, and in 2003 I began my coaching career. I coached for 7 years at all levels of college basketball (NAIA, NCAA II, JUCO, NCAA I), including 4 years as a graduate assistant/player development coach at Texas Tech University under legendary coach Bob Knight. In 2010 at Texas Tech University, I received my Ph.D. and began building international contacts.
I have been fortunate to represent players like John Roberson (led Big 12 in assists and later became one of the top point guards in Spain, France, Russia, Australia, Basketball Champions League, EuroCup, FIBA Europe Cup, Sweden, Switzerland), Ronald Ross (All-American at Texas Tech with a long high level pro career in Europe), Jaye Crockett (2nd team Big 12 player at Texas Tech with a great career in Basketball Champions League, VTB, Australia, France, Italy, FIBA Europe Cup), Kennedy Winston (led SEC in scoring at University of Alabama and played for top EuroLeague teams such as: Real Madrid, Panathinaikos, and Rome as well as in South America), Joe Troy Smith (14-year pro career in Italy, Russia, Israel, Argentina, Brazil), and many other outstanding college players who became high level professional players.
