Overall in the past two seasons, Sharpe has guided the Muleriders to a 32-25 record while also posting consecutive winning seasons for the first time since the 2000-01 and 2001-02 seasons. Last season, Sharpe’s Muleriders went 17-13 overall record and finished tied for fourth in the GAC with a 13-9 mark in the league. The 17 overall wins set a new program record for wins in a season since SAU joined NCAA Division II prior to the 1995-96 season. Additionally, the 13 conference wins were the most in the DII era. As far as post-season play is concerned, Sharpe has led the Muleriders to the GAC Tournament all four years and has advanced the team to the semi-finals twice with opening round wins in 2013-14 and 2015-16. So far at SAU, Sharpe has coached six all-conference players including 2014-15 GAC Defensive Player of the Year/All-GAC FirstTeam selection, Alre’k Brown and 2015-16 GAC Freshman of the Year, CJ Elkins.

During his five-year tenure at Martin Methodist, Sharpe led the RedHawks to a 122-41 (.748) record, claiming two TranSouth Conference regular season and tournament championships. Sharpe also coached five All-America players while at Martin Methodist, including 5-10 guard James Justice, a two-time first-team honoree. Justice drew national fame when he was the “Dark Horse Dunker” at the 2012 Denny’s Slam Dunk championship at the State Farm College Slam Dunk and Three-Point championships in New Orleans, which was in conjunction with the NCAA men’s basketball championship tournament. During his final two seasons at Martin Methodist, Sharpe’s teams spent 21 consecutive weeks ranked in the top 10 of the national poll. In the 2010-11 season, Sharpe’s squad set school records with a 34-3 finish, and finished ranked sixth in the country. Their conference season championship was the first-ever for the school and they opened the season with a school-best 16-0 start. Sharpe’s 2009-10 team finished 18-13 on the year, while the 2008-09 squad was 22-10 and ranked as high as 16th. In Sharpe’s first year at Martin Methodist in 2007-08, he guided the team to a 25-8 mark, an appearance in the national tournament, and to a final season ranking of No. 11. Prior to arriving at Martin Methodist, Sharpe began his collegiate coaching career in 2004-05 as an assistant at Emmanuel College in Franklin Springs, Ga., before taking over the program the following season and serving two years as head coach, compiling a 39-30 (.565) record. He inherited a 4-28 program his first season and improved them to 13-19 in 2005-06, and then set the school record for wins with a 26-11 mark the next year, advancing the team to its first Southern States Athletic Conference tournament championship game, and being named the SSAC coach of the year. Sharpe received his B.S. in business administration in 2002 from Reinhardt (Ga.) University and a M.Ed. in physical education from North Georgia College & State University in 2006. He is married to the former Mandy Bonifacious of Tunnel Hill, Ga., and they have a son, Asher, and two daughters, Ava and AddieJayne.
