Bulldogs vs. Champion Baptist

Tech defeated Champion Baptist 84-45 in exhibition play on Nov. 2, 2010.

Curtis Condie comes into his fourth season as an assistant coach at Louisiana Tech.

With Condie's help, Tech went 24-11 during the 2009-10 season, their best record since 1985 and their second-consecutive nine-win improvement. He also helped Tech's first big improvement from six wins in 2007-08 to 15 wins in 2008-09. The Bulldogs made an appearance in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament and recorded a win in the postseason for the fist time in eight years.

Condie came to Tech after a head coaching year at Texas A&M International University and an associate head coaching role at Utah Valley University.

In just six months with TAMIU after taking over six weeks into the school year and two weeks before the season started, Condie led the Dustdevils to a 14-win season after the school only won four games the previous year. With a 14-13 finish, he is the only coach with a winning record at TAMIU. Condie's team placed two players on the All-Heartland Conference team in the school's first season as a NCAA Divison II provisional member.

TAMIU finished with a 10-6 record and a third place finish in the Heartland Conference which is still the best in school history. Condie has the best winning percentage in Dustdevils' history. His team improved defensively by more than 15 points per game and led the conference in assists per game at 14.0 and assist-to-turnover ratio and second in defensive rebounding and defensive scoring.

Prior to TAMIU, Condie spent four seasons as associate head coach at Utah Valley University during the school's transition from a junior college to an NCAA Division I program. The Wolverines compiled an 82-36 record with Condie on the staff and never had a losing record while playing a full NCAA Division I schedule.

While at Utah Valley, Condie recruited Ryan Toolson, the Arizona High School Player of the Year and became the Wolverines' all-time leading scorer.

UVU finished as 2006 Independent runner-ups, 2005 NCAA Division I Independent Champion, 2004 NCAA Provisional Tournament National Champions and 2003 Scenic West Conference Tournament runner-ups. While at UVU, Condie coached Utah Jazz guard Ronnie Price and worked for 2001-02 Los Angeles Times National Coach of the Year Dick Hunsaker.

Condie also spent time at Northern Arizona, where the Lumberjacks qualified for the Big Sky Conference tournament, and Snow College, where he helped guide Snow to back-to-back Scenic West Conference titles. At Snow College, Condie was the only coach to recruit former New Orleans Hornet Jackson Vroman out of high school.

He also served as the head boy's basketball coach at two Utah high schools; Wasatch High School for one season and South Sevier High School for three seasons. Condie was named Utah AA Basketball Coach of the Year at South Sevier High School in 1996-97. Condie also spent time as an assistant at Sky View High School, Smithfield, Utah, and got his start in coaching at Don Bosco Tech in Rosemead, Calif.

Condie earned his bachelor's degree in physical education from Utah State University in 1994 and where he served as an administrative assistant for former Aggie head coach and current head coach of Southern Miss Larry Eustachy, the 2000 AP National Coach of the Year.

Before transferring to Utah State, Condie played two seasons at East Los Angeles College, where he was team captain and led the South Coast Conference in three-point shooting at 58.3 percent. Condie also served a Latter Days' Saints Church mission to Nashville, Tenn., from July 1985 to 1987.

Condie and his wife Wendy have four children, including daughters Taylor and Courtney, and sons Anthony and Preston.
