Beginning his fourth season with the Horned Frogs, and his eighth year as an assistant coach in the collegiate ranks, is Kevin Lewis. Lewis was hired by TCU head coach Neil Dougherty in April of 2002.

Overall, Lewis possesses more than a decade of coaching experience at the high school and Division I level. Prior to coming to TCU, he spent one season at New Mexico and three at Baylor.

"Kevin Lewis is well respected throughout the state of Texas both as a coach and as a recruiter," Dougherty said. "When Kevin arrrived at TCU, he gave us instant credibility with coaches and potential student-athletes throughout the state. He also brought a different view of coaching basketball because he came from another successful staff. I have had an opportunity to learn from him, and he has had the chance to learn from me."

Before his stint at New Mexico, the 40-year-old Lewis spent the previous eight years as a high school coach in Houston. His final two years in Houston, he coached at the Homeschool Christian Youth Association (HCYA), a program for students who are homeschooled.

In the six years prior to HCYA, Lewis was head coach at Episcopal High School, also in Houston. Episcopal won back-to-back Southwest Preparatory Conference titles under Lewis in 1995 and 1996. Several of Lewis' players at Episcopal went on to play at the Division I level, including Ben Echols, who played center at Baylor from 1997-2000.

A former All-Southwest Conference player at SMU, Lewis was a four-year letterman (1982-86). The Mustangs posted an 85-40 record during Lewis' career, earned two trips to the NCAA Tournament (1984, 1985) and made one appearance in the NIT (1986). Lewis earned first team All-SWC honors his senior year, when he led the Mustangs in scoring with an average of 18.6 points per game. He scored 1,026 career points and totaled 413 rebounds in 111 games and 67 starts at SMU. Lewis graduated from SMU in 1986 with a degree in psychology.

Following his collegiate career, Lewis was drafted by the San Antonio Spurs in the sixth round of the 1986 NBA Draft. He spent the 1986-87 season playing professionally in Australia for Hobart and Melbourne. After returning from Australia, Lewis spent time with the Dallas Mavericks before a five-month stint traveling with the Harlem Magicians.

Lewis, a life-long New York Knicks and New York Yankees fan, was born in Cornwall, N.Y., on Nov. 6, 1964. He attended O'Neill High School in Highland Falls, N.Y. Lewis and his wife, Veronica, are the parents of three: Kelvin, Kalvin and Kaillyn.
