Will Bartlett joined the Razorbacks in the summer of 2011 following the hiring of head coach Mike Anderson and is in his seventh year with the program in 2017-18.
No stranger to Anderson’s “Fastest 40 Minutes in Basketball,” Bartlett worked with Anderson for five years as a student manager and graduate assistant at Missouri before taking Arkansas’ Coordinator of Basketball Operations position prior to the 2011-12 season. Bartlett was promoted to the role of Video Coordinator in fall of 2013.
In his current role, Bartlett is in charge of collecting game tapes, breaking down practice and game footage for instructional use and organizing scouting video for the Razorback coaching staff.
The Arkansas coaching staff continued to bring Razorback basketball back to national relevance in 2016-17, leading the Razorbacks to a 26-10 record, a spot in the SEC Tournament championship game and on the brink of knocking off the eventual National Champion North Carolina Tar Heels with the Sweet 16 on the line.
After earning his undergraduate degree, Bartlett was retained by Anderson and his staff to work as a graduate assistant at Missouri. In that role, he coordinated film exchange, organized the video editing, assisted with scouting reports, oversaw the recruiting database and helped to organize summer camps.
Prior to his increased role, Bartlett was the head student manager at Missouri and helped coordinate visiting team practices, supervised campers at summer camps, set up a training program for new managers, organized practice equipment and assisted coaches with drills and workouts.
A 2009 graduate of Missouri with a degree in psychology, he also earned a master’s degree in parks and recreation from Missouri in the spring of 2011. He was a multi-semester member of the Dean’s List as an undergraduate and graduated in the top 15 percent of his class when he earned his master’s degree.
A native of Macomb, Illinois, Bartlett is the son of David and Martha Bartlett. He was a four-year letterwinner in soccer, basketball and baseball at Macomb High School. He married the former Ashton McAllister on June 4, 2016 and the couple resides in Fayetteville.
