Tom Richardson enters his fourth season at Vanderbilt after joining the men’s basketball program prior to the 2003-04 season.
A trusted friend and talented instructor, Richardson came to Vanderbilt after serving four years as head coach at Illinois State. He succeeded Stallings as the Redbird head coach after the two had combined to lead Illinois State to a 123-63 record in six years.
During that tenure, regarded by many as the most successful in school history, the Redbirds won two Missouri Conference championships, made two trips to the NCAA Tournament and had two berths in the NIT. He also had the opportunity to coach Dan Muller, who is currently on the Vanderbilt staff.
In his four years as head coach, Richardson directed Illinois State to a 56-64 record with two secondplace finishes in the Missouri Valley and one trip to the NIT.
Richardson gained a reputation as an excellent shooting instructor and the Illinois State field goal and free throw percentages during his tenure are proof of that ability. He was responsible for three of the top four free throw percentage seasons and three of the top five field goal percentage seasons in Illinois State history. His 2002-03 squad led the nation, shooting 44 percent from behind the 3-point line.
Prior to going to Illinois State, Richardson compiled a 193-146 record at Nazareth Academy High School in LaGrange, Ill., a Chicago suburb. He began the boys basketball program there and in his last 10 years had a 182-84 mark with three conference championships.
Richardson graduated from St. Xavier (Ill.) in 1977 and was a two-time basketball team captain. He was inducted into the school’s athletics hall of fame in 1991. He received his master’s from Chicago State in 1986.

One of the nation’s youngest and most energetic coaches, Derek Waugh is set to begin his seventh season as head coach of the Stetson Hatters.
After three-plus seasons as an assistant at Stetson, Waugh was elevated to Interim Head Coach on Dec. 27, 2000. At the time, he was the nation’s youngest Division I head coach.
The Waugh era began with a bang as the Hatters defeated Southwest Missouri State 80-76 on Dec. 28, Stetson’s first victory in a “guarantee game” in over 10 years. Waugh then took the Hatters from last place in the Atlantic Sun Conference to a tie for third and the tournament’s number three seed. A win over eventual A-Sun champion Georgia State and a six-game winning streak highlighted Waugh’s first month in charge.
Waugh guided the Hatters to a 17-12 overall record and an 11-7, third-place finish in the conference. Under Waugh’s leadership, the Hatters won their first A-Sun Tournament game in seven years before falling in the semifinals. Stetson was 13-8 with Waugh leading the way and the Hatters’ 17 wins were the most since the 1988-89 season.
