► PRIOR COACHING EXPERIENCE
- Butler comes from Yakima Valley Community College where he spent 12 years coaching. He started out as the assistant men's and women's basketball coach for the first three years from 2000-2003. In the summer of 2003 he was promoted to head coach of the women's program. During his tenure at the helm of the YVCC women Butler guided his teams to the one NWAACC championship, four eastern division titles, nine-consecutive NWAACC tournament appearances, six tournament final fours and three-consecutive trips to the championship game (2010-12). His team went undefeated in region play during its regional title run in 2009 and won it all in 2011. Butler was named the region coach of the year in 2009 and the NWAACC Coach of the Year in 2011.
- Butler's success has been just as solid off the court, graduating a extremely high percentage of his student-athletes. As head coach he also was responsible for his program's operation, fund raising, community involvement, clinics and camps.
- In addition to his coaching duties at YVCC, Butler served the last seven years as an assistant athletic director where he participated in the daily operations of the athletic department from the running of facilities to event management. He also assisted the athletic director in the development and maintaining of the department's budget. Butler also served four years as one of the school's representatives to the NWAACC and six years on the association's women's basketball committee.
- Butler is native of Hagerman, Idaho, but graduated from Elko High School in Nevada. Butler played basketball for Yakima Valley Community College where he was a team captain. He originally attended the University of Nevada, Reno but the love of the game compelled him to transfer to Yakima Valley Community College for the opportunity to play again. After a successful junior college career Butler returned to the University of Nevada where he earned his Bachelor of General Studies degree in 2005. He is currently working on a Masters in Coaching and Athletic Administration through Concordia University in Portland, Ore.
