  • Alma Mater: Sacramento State University (BA, 1989)
  • Verlin began coaching immediately after graduating from Del Oro HS (Loomis, CA) in 1983, spending one year as the freshman coach at Del Oro alongside his twin brother, Don Verlin
    • Later served as associate head coach at Del Oro HS and at Christian Brothers HS in Sacramento
  • Began his collegiate coaching career in 1989, spending two seasons as an assistant at Sierra College (Rocklin, CA)
  • Spent two seasons on Len Stevens’ staff at Nevada and then served as the head coach at Columbia College (Sonora, CA)
  • Initially joined the staff at Pacific in 1994, working under longtime head coach Bob Thomason for nineteen seasons
    • Spent the first eleven seasons as an assistant before being promoted to associate head coach in June 2005
    • During his time with Thomason, the Tigers went to the postseason eight times (including five NCAA Tournament berths)
  • Took over as the head coach at Pacific in 2013 following Thomason’s retirement
    • Went 30-35 in his first two seasons at the helm, but was suspended in December 2015 after going 1-7 through the first 8 games of the season
    • The suspension came as a result of an NCAA investigation into the program, specifically academic and recruiting violations by members of Verlin’s staff and his own “failure to monitor”
    • The NCAA announced penalties on both Pacific and Verlin in September 2017, including an eight-year show-cause for Verlin that will likely keep him out of college coaching for the foreseeable future
