Mann was a member of the Iowa State coaching staff from 2011-15 and helped the Cyclones achieve unprecedented success. ISU went to a school-record four consecutive NCAA Tournaments and achieved a 99-40 overall record. Mann was pivotal in recruiting Michigan-native Monte Morris to Iowa State who is one of the nation's top point guards after being named a two-time Bob Cousy Award Finalist. During his time at Iowa State, he added a Michigan-to-Iowa State pipeline and was also the lead defensive coach.
Mann has 15 years of experience as an assistant coach at the Division I level and has qualified for NCAA Tournament play at all four of his assistant coaching stops. He has won five championships at four different schools and has averaged better than 20 wins as an assistant coach. Prior to Iowa State, he coached at Dayton, Western Michigan and Central Michigan. The Royal Oak Township native was an all-state performer at Ferndale High School, where he earned league MVP accolades and a nomination to the McDonald's High School All-America Team.
