Goins joined the men's basketball staff late in the summer of 2013 for his first collegiate job as an assistant coach. Over the previous three years, he had served as an assistant coach for Salisbury Prep School in Connecticut, which compiled a 64-18 record in New England Prep School Basketball during his tenure.
The 2011-12 Salisbury squad won the league championship while leading Class “A” in scoring (68.2 ppg) and scoring defense (52.3 ppg). Several of the student-athletes to play under Goins went on to Division I careers at places such as Syracuse, Bucknell, Marist and Niagara.
During the summer of 2013, Goins was the head coach of the Westchester Hawks in AAU ball, leading his squad to a regional tournament championship and second-place finish at the Basketball Hall of Fame Tournament in Ardsely, N.Y. Some of his players are now playing at Fairfield, Quinnipiac and LIU Brooklyn.
A 2008 graduate of St. John’s University with a degree in sports management, Goins participated in the Red Storm’s off-season 5-on-5 open gym workouts and helped with the women’s practices as well.
