Darting joins UALR staff as Director of Basketball Operations

Welcome to Kerry Darting who joined the UALR men's basketball staff today.

Darting is the new Director of Basketball Operations and replaces Chris Lowry, who held the same position two different times under UALR Coach Steve Shields.

Darting spent the previous five seasons at Illinois State, where he was the Director of Basketball Operations on Tim Jankovich's staff.

"Kerry brings a wealth of experience to the position, comes from a coaching family and understands the profession," Shields said in a release. "I know he's eager to get started, and we're anxious to get him here. Every operations position differs from staff to staff, but they all have the same core, and the fact that he has five years of experience in that role will be a huge benefit to our program."

Darting played college basketball at NCAA Division II Missouri-Rolla after starting school at Kansas State.

His duties at UALR include overseeing student-athlete academics and living arrangements, team travel, video exchange, and outreach programs.

Lowry left UALR earlier in the summer to become an assistant coach at Cleburne High School in Texas.
