Scholl was instrumental in landing some of Loyola Marymount's top talent in recent years as an excellent West Coast recruiter, as well as someone with extensive international ties. Scholl's top success story is likely guard Anthony Ireland, a 2,000 point scorer with the Lions who was a four-time first-team All-WCC selection. Scholl also helped recruit four other 1,000 point scorers as well as two big men in Drew Viney and Ashley Hamilton who were just the 13th and 14th players in LMU history to score 1,000 points and grab 500 rebounds.
A two-year player at Sacramento State, Scholl finished his undergraduate career at Ohio Weslyan, earning a double major in Sociology and History. He then went on to earn his law degree from Maryland, and pursued a passion for international basketball.
Starting out his coaching career by working with NBA players in camps throughout the Carribean, Scholl then moved to Johannesburg, South Africa. Working as the Director of Sports and International Programs for Miles and Associates International, School managed the creation and implementation of the "Love Life" HIV and AIDS prevention campaign, voted the most creative and innovative prevention program in the world by the United Nations.
Never abandoning his pursuit of basketball however, Scholl established the first national high school basketball league in South Africa, a program that included over 42,000 participants. Additionally, he served as an international scout for the Detroit Pistons, working with players such as Rodney Stuckey, Jason Maxiel, and Arron Afflalo.
While overseas, Scholl also found time to serve as an assistant coach for the Senegal Men's National team, as well as working as a GM for the Soweto Panthers of the Premier Basketball League and spending six years as an assistant coach of the South Africa Men's National Team and head coach of the South Africa Men's U20 Team.
