Gerad Good was named Manchester University's 22nd head men's basketball coach in April 2015. In his first season, the program saw a turnaround of seven more victories which was part of a .500 mark (13-13) and earned a berth in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference's postseason tournament, a first since 2011.
He has seen prior success with the Black and Gold. He was a student-athlete on back-to-back 20-or-more win campaigns under former head coach Steve Alford in 1992-93 and 1993-94 and was a student assistant on Alford's staff when the Black and Gold made their magical run to the NCAA Division III national championship game during the 1994-95 season.
Good has been a part of the game at virtually every level. His previous stints include NCAA Division II University of Southern Indiana where he was an assistant coach on the staff during a 136-36 record, five national tournament appearances, and two Great Lakes Valley Conference tournament championships since the 2009-10 season; NCAA Division I Indiana University – Purdue University – Fort Wayne, as an assistant coach from 2007-09 for teams that set a new standard for Division I wins at the institution; and John A. Logan College, from 2004-07, where the Volunteers produced a 75-22 record and were ranked No. 7 on the National Junior College Athletic Association national polls during his time as an assistant coach.
