Jason James has been at the helm of The University of Tennessee at Martin men's basketball program since 2009-10. After spending seven seasons as an assistant coach at The University of Tennessee at Martin, including the role of associate head coach during the 2008-09 Ohio Valley Conference championship season, James was named the program's eighth head coach on June 5, 2009. James, a native of St. Louis, Mo., is one of the nation's youngest NCAA Division-I men's basketball head coach, but his experience in the UT Martin program has prepared James for the challenge During the 2011-12 campaign, James coached OVC Freshman of the Year Myles Taylor. Taylor also earned OVC All-Newcomer accolades after taking home the league's Freshman of the Week award five times during the season Over his tenure at UT Martin as an assistant coach, James was directly responsible in the recent resurgence of the Skyhawk program over the last several seasons. Since his first season on the Skyhawk bench in 2002, James has coached seven of UT Martin's 15 all-time 1,000 point scorers. He also recruited two of UT Martin's all- time great Division-I players in Jared Newson and Lester Hudson. In Hudson, James found a diamond in the rough that became one of the best all-around players in the NCAA and eventually would be chosen by the Boston Celtics in the 2009 NBA Draft. In Hudson's collegiate debut, he torched eventual national runner-up Memphis for 35 points, but the legend of Hudson was just getting started. Just eight days later, Hudson grabbed national headlines when he became the first-ever NCAA Division-I men's basketball player to record a quadruple-double (25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 steals) vs. Central Baptist on Nov. 13, 2007. Later that season, Hudson became the first-ever UT Martin player to be named an All-American since the program joined the Division-I ranks in 1992. That season, James helped guide the Skyhawks to a school-record for OVC wins in one season (11), as UT Martin won the OVC regular season championship for the first time ever. The Skyhawks also hosted and won a first-round OVC Tournament game for the first time in UT Martin history, before falling to eventual-tournament champion Austin Peay by a single point (78-77). In that 2008-2009 season the Skyhawks broke or tied 12 team and individual game/season records, including most wins in a single season (22), and longest winning streak (11 games from Jan. 10 through Feb. 18). After winning its first-ever OVC regular-season championship, the Skyhawks earned a trip to the National Invitation Tournament (NIT), the first postseason appearance for a UT Martin team in its brief Division-I history. In that game, the Skyhawks hung tough with SEC member Auburn on Auburn's home floor before falling 87-82
