A former student-athlete on the USF men’s basketball team (1990-93), Dollar played on the Bulls’ 1991 NIT and the 1992 NCAA Tournament teams. He brings strong southeast ties to the Bulls program as an accomplished 20-year assistant coach with tenures at Wichita State, Georgia Tech, LSU, and most recently, Auburn. “I am thrilled about bringing Chad Dollar back into the USF men’s basketball program,” said Gregory. “He has separated himself as one of the best recruiters in the country and at a high level during his time at Wichita State, LSU, Georgia Tech and Auburn. I have obviously had a great working relationship with Chad during our five years together at Georgia Tech. He also brings an unbelievable passion for player development, game preparation and relationship building with student-athletes. It is great to have a member of the staff who wore the USF jersey and knows what it means to be a student-athlete at USF. Chad and his tremendous family will be exceptional ambassadors to our program.” Dollar joins USF from Auburn, where he was an assistant coach for Bruce Pearl in 2016-17. He helped guide the Tigers to an 18-win season, the most victories for the program since 2008-09. Prior to Auburn, Dollar was a five-year member of Gregory’s staff at Georgia Tech (2011-16). He served as an assistant for three years and as associate head coach two seasons that included a 21-win campaign and a trip to the NIT quarterfinals (2016). In 2010-11, Dollar was an assistant for head coach Gregg Marshall at Wichita State. Dollar helped that Shockers team win 29 games and the NIT Championship, laying a foundation for Wichita State’s future success in the NCAA Tournament that included a Final Four run in 2013. Additionally, Dollar was a three-year assistant coach under John Brady - two at Arkansas State (2008-10) and one year at LSU (2007-08). He also coached at Murray State (2006-07) and Georgia Southern (2002-06). Dollar was an associate head coach on Travis Ford’s staff at Eastern Kentucky (2001-02) and an assistant for two seasons with Western Carolina (1999-01). Dollar got his start in coaching as a volunteer and graduate assistant at Gardner-Webb and as a graduate assistant for one season at Southern Mississippi. Dollar also played a vital role in the community by partnering with Athletes in Action for two summers as an assistant coach. Following a noteworthy prep career at Douglass High School in Atlanta, Dollar became a student-athlete at USF. A three-year member of the Bulls’ men’s basketball program, Dollar played on the 1991 team that appeared in the NIT and the 1992 squad that played Georgetown in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Dollar finished his collegiate career at Milligan College (Tenn.), and received his bachelor’s degree in sociology in 1996. Chad and his wife, Kyla, have three children, Aliyah, Darian and Chloe.

  7. USF ATHLETICS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Web Link: Bulls Drop 11-Inning Heartbreaker in Middle Game A wild sequence allowed the winning run to score in the 11th TAMPA, MARCH 25, 2017 – After the tying the game in the bottom of the eighth to force extras, the University of South Florida baseball team caught a pair of runners stealing in the 11th, but a wild sequence allowed a run to sneak home which was the difference in Saturday’s 3-2 loss to Florida A&M University. The Bulls (21-3) put two men into scoring position in the first inning, but stranded both to begin what would end up being a real pitcher’s duel for much of the contest. The sides combined for just four hits over the first 3 1/2 frames until the hosts tallied a pair in the bottom of the fourth to take a 1-0 lead on a sac fly. But the Rattlers (15-8) took their first lead in the series in the next half inning on a two-run homer to left field, making it 2-1.

After loading the bases with one gone, another sac fly scored a run to tie the game before a line drive to third ended the threat, stranding two men in scoring position. The Bulls and Rattlers each put two on in the ninth but neither could plate a run, sending the action into extras. FAMU got a man on in the bottom of the 11th, who then stole second. After a walk was issued, the two runners were caught in a run down. Sophomore Andrew Perez (Orlando) threw to second, the ball then went to first to get the runner on first, but the runner who was on second was now rounding third, prompting a throw home. After a throw to sophomore David Villar (Pembroke Pines, Fla.) at third, a final throw was sent back home but the lead runner was able to get behind catcher Tyler Dietrich (Naples, Fla.) to score the go-ahead and eventual game-winning run. Villar doubled in the bottom of the 11th with one out, but he was stranded on second to end the game. Key Stats Senior Luke Borders (Winter Haven, Fla.) went 2-for-3 with a run and a RBI, as he was the only Bull with multiple hits. Sophomore Chris Chatfield (Riverview, Fla.) had the other run and went 1-for-3.
