Carey is a veteran of west coast coaching and recruiting, having spent time at New Mexico, Portland State, Loyola Marymount, Hawai’i and Fresno State.
Carey spent five years at Fresno State, recruiting and developing a number of NBA-Caliber players, most notably Paul George, who has gone on to become an All-Star with the Indiana Pacers. Dominic McGuire, Tyler Johnson and Greg Smith have also gone on to NBA careers following their time with the Bulldogs and Carey.
After finishing his collegiate playing career at New Mexico, Carey stayed on with the Lobos as an Undergraduate Assistant Coach, and then took his first full-time position in Division I as an assistant coach with Portland State. He spent one year with the Vikings before moving to Fresno State.
Following a five-year stint with the Bulldogs, Carey went on to start his own business, The Basketball Experience, a coaching program that provided training for players at all levels while serving as the head coach of Menlo-Atherton High School in Menlo Park.
Returning to Division I coaching in 2013-14, Carey worked alongside LBSU assistant coach Myke Scholl at Loyola Marymount, and then went on to spend one season at Hawai’i before taking his last position at Florida Gulf Coast.
With the Eagles, Carey was responsible for the team’s low-post development, helping Marc-Eddy Norelia earned first-team All-Atlantic Sun honors as well as an NABC first-team All-District selection. Norelia had 16 double-doubles in 2015-16, and set multiple program records as the Eagles averaged 38.7 points per game in the paint.
The fourth seed in the Atlantic Sun tournament, Florida Gulf Coast went on a run to win the tournament, and then defeated Fairleigh Dickinson in the First Four at the 2015-16 NCAA Tournament.
Carey’s playing career started at Washington, where he was a Pac-10 All-Freshman selection before transferring to New Mexico. In 2001-02, Carey started 20 games for the Lobos but had a career-ending injury just after the beginning of the 2002-03 campaign.
