“The committee was impressed with his body of work as a student-athlete and a coach,” Senior Associate Athletic Director Bruce Stewart stated. “Dominik has been categorized as a “player’s coach” and comes from a winning tradition at Baylor. He has been a proficient recruiter while maintaining a solid reputation for developing student-athletes.”
In 2016, he helped lead the Bears to a final ranking of No. 32. In 2015, Baylor advanced to the NCAA semifinals with a 25-6 mark and finished the year with a final ranking of No. 3. The Bears won the Big 12 regular season and tournament titles in 2014, advancing to the NCAA quarterfinals and finishing with a final ranking of No. 6.
