Beginning his third season with the Razorback men’s basketball program, David Deets is no stranger to Mike Anderson’s style of basketball. He is a seven-year veteran of the up-tempo system having worked with Anderson and his staff at the University of Missouri for five seasons before joining them at Arkansas as head strength coach. 

One of the most well respected men’s basketball strength coaches in the country, Deets has been a featured speaker at national conferences and was one of seven individuals in Nike Basketball’s SPARQ program. The Nike SPARQ program developed new testing measures for basketball.  

Since his arrival at Arkansas, Deets has wasted no time in transforming the Razorback strength and conditioning area into one that will best serve Arkansas and Anderson’s style. He reorganized the room for more efficient training and renovated the overall look of the space. 

His work with players has also produced significant results as the Razorbacks have transformed their bodies. A perfect example of Deets’ work can be seen in sophomore Jacorey Williams who has added nearly 30 pounds between his high school graduation and the start of his second season. Since the summer, freshman Bobby Portis has added 20 pounds while classmate and fellow top 50 recruit Moses Kingsley has add 17. 

Prior to joining Anderson and his staff at Arkansas, Deets spent five years at Missouri. He was instrumental in the renovations of Sally O. Nichols weight room and mentored four National Strength and Conditioning All-Americans. Deets’s off-season regimen with the Tigers was key in Missouri’s three NCAA tournament runs and Big 12 Tournament Championship in 2009. 

After graduating from Northeastern State University in 2000, Deets went on to a graduate assistantship at Oklahoma State. He would spend one year with the Cowboys before landing his first full-time job at Northwestern State in Natchitoches, La. As head strength and conditioning coach, Deets oversaw all the aspects of strength training for NSU’s 14 intercollegiate sports. His career path would then take Deets to Texas Christian and back to Oklahoma State before settling in at Missouri prior to the 2006-07 season.

Deets earned his degree from Northeastern State in Health and Human Performance in 2000. The Newcastle, Okla., native and his wife Angela have two daughters, Emery Rose (6), and Violet Beatrice (3).
