Rob loves his “two girls.” His wife, Brittany, is a graduate of Evangel University and their daughter, Harlow, was born in April of 2016. He loves to read, exercise, and take his two loving and rambunctious dogs on new adventures. The way to Rob’s heart is a good cup of coffee and building relationships. He is excited to be back on the sidelines as an Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach at Evangel University.
