He first played football at Permian High School. His junior year the team went on to win the Texas 5A State Championship in 1980. He played college football at Colorado State University where he earned first team All-Western Athletic Conference his senior year and was once named Sports Illustrated Defensive Player of the Week.

In 2005, he was hired as the head coach at Angelo State University. In his first year, he brought the once prominent, but recent struggling program, to the NCAA Division II playoffs.
