Steve Alford Biography

Steve Alford was born November 23, 1964 and is a retired basketball player and the current head coach of UCLA men's basketball team. Alford, a former college basketball star and NBA player, was born in Franklin, Indiana and he grew up in New Castle, Indiana.

Following college, Alford played for four years at the professional level. During his time in the NBA, he played for the Dallas Mavericks and Golden State Warriors. He scored 744 points, had 176 assists, and shot free throws with an accuracy of 87 percent.

Alford had hoped to be drafted by the in-state Indiana Pacers in the 1987 NBA draft. Popular sentiment around the state sided with Alford, hoping the Pacers would select the hometown boy with their first-round pick. Instead, with the 11th pick in the first round the Pacers selected Reggie Miller. The large crowd at the Pacers' draft party booed. Alford slipped to the #3 pick in the second round, and Miller spent 18 years with the Pacers.

Alford co-wrote a book, Playing for Knight My Six Seasons with Coach Knight, about his college and Olympic basketball experiences playing under Bob Knight.

Alford was named head coach at the University of New Mexico on March 23, 2007 replacing the fired Ritchie McKay. In his first year as the Lobos coach Alford posted a record of 249, 115 in league play. 24 wins is the most for a New Mexico head coach in their first year. The Lobos were led by future 1st round Boston Celtics NBA draft pick J.R. Giddens. The Lobos were eliminated in the first round of the NIT by Cal.

In his second season led by seniors Daniel Farris, Tony Danridge and Chad Toppert Alford guided the Lobos to their first conference championship in 15 years. He earned the MWC coach of the year award for his teams performance. Alford also set a record for most wins in the first two seasons for a UNM head coach. Alford and his New Mexico squad fell just short of the NCAA tourney and ended up with their second consecutive NIT bid. They won a first round home game against Nebraska and lost on a last second buzzer beater on the road to Notre Dame.
