The 2011-12 campaign will mark the third at Marquette for Bart Lundy, who serves as the program's Director of Basketball Operations.
Lundy, 39, owns an 11-year head coaching record of 211-128 (.622) at a pair of programs. When he claimed his 200th win on February 27, 2008, he became one of the youngest coaches in NCAA history to reach that milestone. His career winning percentage also placed him in the top-10 percent among active coaches in the country.
Lundy arrived in Milwaukee after serving for six seasons as head coach at High Point. He compiled an overall record of 96-87 and guided the program to numerous individual and team accolades. During his tenure, the Panthers set school records for NCAA Division I wins in a season, conference victories, road wins and RPI ranking.
The Galax, Va., native collected the top-rated Big South recruiting classes on five occasions at HPU and has developed multiple student-athletes into all-conference caliber performers. Honors collected by Royals players under Lundy's supervision include player of the year (3), defensive player of the year and the league's all-time leading rebounder (Arizona Reid). Lundy was tabbed the Big South Coach of the Year by several publications in 2004 after leading the team to a 19-11 overall record and an appearance in the league's conference tournament championship game in his first season. He was also tabbed the nation's top rookie coach that season by CollegeInsider.com after his team posted a 13-win improvement from the previous year.
Previous to High Point, Lundy compiled an overall record of 115-41 in five seasons at Queens University of Charlotte. His tenure included a pair of NCAA Division II Elite Eight appearances and one trip to the Final Four (2003). He recruited and coached five All-America selections, including the 2003 national player of the year (Spencer Ross).
Lundy was tabbed the Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in 2001 and was also named the NCAA East Region Coach of the Year that season. The Royals claimed the league title in four of his five years on the bench and shattered the school record for victories in a season (29 in 2002-03) on three occasions.
In the classroom during his decade as a head coach, 90 percent of the student-athletes under Lundy earned their degrees and 100 percent were on track to graduate entering their final season of eligibility. Highly involved in the profession and the community, he has served on NCAA and NABC committees while also working with the YMCA and Boys & Girls Club.
His career at Queens included a three-year stint (1995-97) as an assistant coach under Dale Layer.
A 1994 graduate of Winthrop, Lundy was a player at UNC Pembroke and Lenoir-Rhyne before starting his coaching career. Lundy was an assistant at Winthrop for three years (1993-95) under head coach Dan Kenney before becoming an assistant at Queens. He earned his master's degree from Winthrop in 1998.
Lundy is the proud father of three sons: Ian, Kellen and Alec.
