COACH AND PROGRAM

Travis Ford is way ahead of schedule.

It's not surprising either. He joined the head-coaching ranks at the tender age of 27 at NAIA Campbellsville. He won't turn 40 until after this season is well under way, and he already has been a Division I head coach for nine years. He has been to the postseason four times, including two NCAA appearances.
