Coaching Staff

David Ferrell Head Coach David Ferrell completed his second season as the head coach in grand fashion. Ferrell led the Eagles to the playoffs in 2014-15, the first time the program has qualified for postseason play in nearly ten years. In just two seasons, Ferrell has quickly built a competitive program, highlighted by a post-season appearance and strong back-to-back recruiting classes. Ferrell’s up-tempo style has proven to be among the most potent in the American Southwest Conference as it has ranked among the top scoring offenses the past two seasons. In 2014-15, Ferrell’s teams defeated every instate school it played in regular season competition. Talented recruiting classes have elevated Ferrell as one of the top recruiters in Arkansas. In 2013-14 and 2014-15, he coached the conference Freshman of the Year. In all, three of his players have been on the ASC All-Freshman Team. In year one, Ferrell improved the team’s conference win total by two from the previous season as well as posting more overall wins. With his fast-paced philosophy and a strong recruiting class, the program demonstrated quick success as it won three of its first five games. The program also had a signature win over Concordia University Texas late in the season. Guard Josh Ferrell was named ASC Freshman of the Year and received a spot on the All-Freshman Team. Guard Ricky Allen led the conference in assists and earned national accolades when he made the D3Hoops.com Team of the Week. Ferrell followed that season with a postseason appearance and another ASC Freshman of the Year award. With a solid foundation in place, Ferrell’s program aims for even more success in year three with four starters returning. Prior to Ozarks, Ferrell spent 21 years as the head boy’s basketball coach at West Fork High School where he posted a 458-176 (.733) record and made eight trips to the state tournament. He compiled a 510-202 (.716) career record in 24 years as a head coach at Shiloh Christian, Lincoln, Gravette and West Fork. Ferrell was voted the head coach of the Arkansas High Coaches Association (AHSCA) All-Star Game in 1994 and 2011. Ferrell was also the athletics director for 12 years at WFHS Ferrell, who has worked alongside Gus Malzahn, Mike Anderson and Jimmy Dykes during his coaching career, served as the Vice-President of the Arkansas High School Basketball Coaches Association. He founded the popular Arkansas Athletes Outreach Top-25 basketball camp in 1995.

Ferrell received his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in Physical Education from University of Arkansas. Ferrell and his wife, Kelly, are the parents of three children, Josh, Jassa and Jordyn. Chris Goodman Assistant Coach Chris Goodman enters his second season as the assistant men’s basketball coach. Goodman helped the program to its first conference playoff appearance in nearly a decade last season. Goodman, a former standout guard and assistant basketball coach at NCAA Division III Hendrix College, was among the top guards in the Southern Athletic Association Conference. His work with Ozarks’ guards has resulted in ranking among the top scoring teams in the league. A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Goodman hit 179 career three-pointers from 2008-12 playing the point guard and shooting guard positions for Hendrix. Goodman, who served as a team captain his senior season, hit a season-best 65 three-pointers his junior year. After his playing career, Goodman served as a volunteer assistant at Keller Central High School during the 2012 season. He then went to Hendrix where he was a volunteer assistant with the men’s program during the 2013-2014 season. Goodman received his bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from Hendrix in 2012. He and his wife, Amber, were married in 2013.

Eagles Build Off Playoff Experience The men’s basketball team turned the corner under head coach David Ferrell as his Eagles qualified for the 2014-2015 American Southwest Conference Tournament for the first time in nearly a decade. Now, Ferrell inherits four starters to fuel high expectations heading into the 2015-2016 season. “One of our strengths is experience,” said Ferrell. “We have four returning starters so we are a year older and a year better in four positions. We also have six to eight other guys that got a lot of minutes. Qualifying for the playoffs has helped with momentum coming into this season. It was a big deal for our kids. They have shown it is possible.” Senior Kelby Robinson, sophomore Jace Richardson and juniors Josh Ferrell and Josh Berard are back to form an experienced nucleus. Richardson, a 6-foot point guard, was named the ASC Freshman of the Year and earned a spot on the All-Freshman Team. Robinson, a 6-foot-6 junior forward, was named to the All-Conference Third Team. “Kelby is better now than he was last season,” said Ferrell. “He is a team player. He can play a number of positions. He will be able to play more of his natural position this season. Jace and Dylan Gray did a spectacular job. Josh Berard is a good player and Josh Ferrell changes defenses with his shooting ability. Money can’t buy two years of experience in the ASC with Kelby, Josh Berard and Josh Ferrell.” Richardson was the top scoring freshman in the league with a 13.3 points per game average. He also led all conference freshmen in assists (4.2) and steals (1.3). Robinson had a breakout season, ranking tenth in the ASC in scoring (15.5), fifth in rebounding (7.8), ninth in field goal percentage (42%), thirteenth in free throw percentage (72%) and eighth in steals (1.3). Ferrell, a 6-foot-1 guard, averaged nearly five points per game and 1.8 steals and 2.3 assists per game. Berard, a 6-foot-3 guard, ranked second on the team with a 14.2 scoring average. Berard also averaged 4.7 rebounds per game. Gray, a sophomore forward who earned a spot on the ASC All-Freshman Team, and sophomore guard Ben Grice saw substantial minutes last season. Gray averaged 8.3 points and 4.8 rebounds per game, while Grice scored over five points per game. The Eagles saw significant improvement when competing against the upper echelon teams in the conference. Ozarks dropped a pair of nail-biters to perennial conference powers Texas-Dallas and Mary Hardin-Baylor.

Kelby Robinson “Improving is one thing, but you’d like to come through and win those types of games,” said Ferrell. “I hope we are closer this year.” In addition to four returner starters, the program brought in a solid freshmen class to go along with a prized transfer. The biggest addition is Pete Barber, a 7-foot, 280-pound transfer. “Pete gives us a dimension we haven’t had,” said Ferrell. “He gives us an inside presence, shot blocker and a guy that can score in the paint. I’m excited about him.” The Eagles finished 8-18 overall and 4-16 in the conference a year ago. Ferrell and his squad hope to extend the year into the post-season. “We really haven’t set a goal for a number of wins,” said Ferrell. “The playoffs are on everyone’s minds from day one. As much as people talk about it, it is something we work for. I’m sure our players would tell you that they want to make a repeat playoff appearance. I think we are close, but close doesn’t get you very far in this league.”
