In this series of updates on the history of each Pac-12 men’s hops program, we provide a brief coaching summary, list of the current coaches, along with postseason results, conference titles, award winners, and all-time coaching records.Stanford began varsity intercollegiate competition in men’s basketball in 1914. Since then, the Cardinal have won 13 conference championships and one NCAA championship.
The Cardinal has also been retroactively recognized as the pre-NCAA Tournament national champion for the 1936–37 season by the Premo-Porretta Power Poll and the Helms Athletic Foundation.
Stanford’s early coaching history includes a man with a name seemingly built for the Cardinal-Husky rivalry, E.P. Husky Hunt, who was hired in 1926.
But the program began to pick up steam in 1930 with the hiring of John Bunn, who led Stanford to three conference titles, compiling a record of 108-82.
Everett Dean took the reins in 1938 and directed the Cardinal to their first and only NCAA title in 1942. He also coached the baseball team beginning in 1950, engineering a trip to the 1953 College World Series.
Dean is the only coach to have been inducted into both the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame and the College Baseball Hall of Fame.
Howie Dallmar, a former Stanford player, coached the Cardinal men’s basketball team for 21 years with moderate success, finishing with a record of 256-264.
Mike Montgomery made the most indelible mark on the program’s history, earning four conference titles, and taking his teams to 12 NCAA Tournaments, including a Final Four appearance in 1998, the first in 56 years.
Montgomery was voted the Pac-12 Coach of the Year four times (1999, 2000, 2003 & 2004), and was named the Naismith National Coach of the Year in 2000.
He won the John R. Wooden Legends of Coaching Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004.
Jerod Haase, who earned a reputation at Kansas as a scrappy point guard and coached under Roy Williams at both Kansas and North Carolina, was hired in 2016.
Haase has compiled a record of 98-90 in his first six seasons and has recruited several outstanding NBA prospects.
