Fred Quartlebaum joined the Kansas men’s basketball staff as director of student-athlete development in June 2013. In three seasons at KU, Quartlebaum has been part of Kansas’ 10th, 11th and 12th-straight Big 12 regular-season championships, one Big 12 Tournament title, two in-season tourney titles and an NCAA Championship Elite Eight run in 2016. Additionally, Quartlebaum has seen five Jayhawks move on to the NBA, including Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid, the No. 1 and No. 3 overall selections in the 2014 NBA Draft.
In the summer of 2015, Quartlebaum was an assistant coach which guided the USA National Team, made up mainly of University of Kansas student-athletes and KU coaches and staff, to the gold medal at the World University Games in Gwangju, Korea, by posting an 8-0 record. The medal was USA’s first in three World University Games and the first gold, 14th overall, for the Americans since 2005.
