Jon Sanders begins his first season at the helm of the Asbury University program in 2012, taking over a program that has qualified for the NAIA National Tournament in two of the previous three seasons.
Sanders was a very successful coach on the Indiana high school and travel-team levels. He led the Hamilton Heights High School (Arcadia, Ind.) to two conference titles (2009 and 2010) and was named the coach of the year in the conference in 2009. Sanders spent four years (2005-08) leading Daleville High School and Bloomington North High School, where he won two more conference titles and one sectional title. He amassed a record of 186-57 (.765 winning percentage) in six years as a high school head coach.
Sanders has also enjoyed success on the travel-team circuit, starting the Indiana Huskies program and leading it to consecutive state runner-up finishes in 2008 and 2009. The Huskies made one appearance in the national tournament in 2009.
