Brent Hartman begins his second season as a graduate assistant coach for the Green Wave in 2006-07.
During Hartman's first season on the Wave staff, Tulane recorded a 17-13 overall record, registered a fourth-place finish in Conference USA play and advanced to the C-USA Tournament semifinals.
Hartman is no stranger to two members of the TU coaching staff-- head coach Dave Dickerson and assistant coach Andrew Novick.
Hartman was a men's basketball manager for the Maryland Terrapins team from 2002-06, and spent his first three years working with both Dickerson and Novick. During his time as a manager, he was responsible for the daily set-up and management of the basketball court, locker room and the film room for game, practices and workouts.
He also assisted the Maryland coaching staff in practices and individual workouts, helped with preparing self scouts and opponent scouts and organized team gear and equipment for road games.
Since 2002, Hartman has been heavily involved with summer camps on the collegiate level, including working camps for Dickerson, Maryland's Gary Williams, Florida's Billy Donovan, Vermont's Mike Lonergan, Clemson's Oliver Purnell, Kentucky's Tubby Smith and former Maryland standout Steve Blake.
He has also worked with basketball tournaments on the national level, including the Boo Williams Invitational from 2003-05 and the Charlie Weber Invitational in 2002 and 2004.
A native of Gainesville, Fla., Hartman earned his bachelor's degree in history with a minor in secondary education from Maryland in May of 2006. He is currently working in the teacher preparation and certification program at Tulane.
