“I am pleased to have Logan Dahms join our staff as our newest assistant coach,” said VMI head mentor Dan Earl. “Logan has a variety of experience due to his stops throughout college basketball. He also has playing experience as both a former college and overseas player. I believe he will relate well to our players, has the ability to recruit at a high level, and can provide insight to our game planning, particularly with his interest in the analytical side to the game of basketball. Logan has great character, is a very sharp young coach, and has a bright future. I am excited to have him and I am confident that he will immediately add value to our VMI Basketball Program.”
Dahms spent the 2016-17 season working with both the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA’s Developmental League as well as the NBA champion Golden State Warriors as a video and analytics assistant.
