Since joining the Cardinal basketball staff on April 1, 1999, Tony Fuller has helped maintain Stanford's status as one of the elite basketball programs with his hard work and dedication.
As he enters his sixth season as an assistant coach on The Farm, Fuller has helped coached Stanford to a 132-28 (.825) record, three Pac-10 titles, five NCAA Tournaments, and has been a part of three Stanford teams that have been ranked #1 in the nation.
"Stanford is very lucky to have a coach with Tony's wealth of knowledge," said Cardinal head coach Trent Johnson. "Coach Fuller exemplifies class. His expertise will be sought after by many schools looking for a new head coach."
Fuller, a former head coach at Pepperdine and San Diego State, is an excellent coach and recruiter who has developed such top players as Mark Madsen, Casey Jacobsen, Curtis Borchardt, Jarron and Jason Collins and Josh Childress. His coaching expertise has helped the Collins twins, Madsen, Borchardt and Jacobsen develop into players who have taken their talents to the NBA.
Fuller, 46, before arriving at Stanford, served as an assistant coach at Utah State University. He was an assistant coach at Colorado State for two seasons (1996-97, 1997-98) after four years as a head coach (two seasons at San Diego State in 1992-93 and 1993-94, and two seasons at Pepperdine in 1994-95, 1995-96).
Fuller began his coaching career as an assistant coach at Pepperdine from 1983-88. From there, Fuller went to UCLA as an assistant coach for four seasons (1989-92) before obtaining his first head coaching position.
As a player at Pepperdine, Fuller earned All-West Coast Conference honors and helped the Waves to the NCAA Tournament in 1979 and the NIT in 1980. He then played for the NBA's Detroit Pistons, and the Anchorage Knights of the CBA before entering the coaching profession.
Fuller earned his bachelor's degree in physical education in 1983, and his Master's Degree in 1989 from Pepperdine.
Fuller has a son, Preston, 12.
