Career[edit]

In the 2002–03 school year, Simon was junior varsity boys' basketball head coach and a varsity assistant coach at Harrison Community High School in Harrison, Michigan. Simon then was a volunteer assistant coach at Pepperdine University in the 2003–04 season under Paul Westphal before becoming an assistant coach under Lon Kruger at UNLV from 2004 to 2006.[1]

From 2006 to 2012, Simon was an assistant coach at basketball power Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nevada before assuming the head coach spot for the 2012–13 season. In 2013, Simon returned to UNLV as an assistant coach, this time under Dave Rice.[2] When head coach Dave Rice was dismissed on January 10, 2016, Simon was named interim head coach of the Runnin' Rebels.
