During his tenure as head coach, Billups compiled a record of 48-94 and was never able to garner the success as a head coach as he did during his playing days at Denver.

During the 2020-2021 season, Denver went 1-13 in Summit League play and didn't qualify for the tournament in Sioux Falls this week.

Of course, Billups name is well known with his brother Chauncey being an NBA champion and current NBA analyst.

It will be interesting to see what direction they go in as geographically, they should be able to recruit better and win more than they have been able to do.

Even if they are able to improve the roster, it is going to take a good coach in order to turn the tides around and compete in a very competitive Summit League.
