Associate Director of Operations

Zavier Anderson enters his first season as UAB's associate director of operations. Anderson comes to the Blazers from the Citadel, where he served as the director of basketball operations.

A 2011 graduate of Clemson, Anderson went to The Citadel after spending two seasons as a graduate assistant under Shaka Smart at VCU.

Anderson was part of a VCU staff that advanced to the third round of the NCAA Tournament during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons. He assisted Smart and his staff in the development of players such as Darius Theus (CAA Tournament MVP, 2011-12; Lefty Driesell Defensive All-America Team, 2012-13) and Melvin Johnson (Atlantic-10 All-Rookie Team, 2012-13).

Anderson was involved in the day-to-day operations of the Rams' basketball program. He also assisted in the preparation of film and scouting reports and aided the coaching staff during practices and drills.

A walk-on at Clemson, Anderson appeared in 56 games, scored 47 points, handed out 44 assists and forced 26 steals during his four-year career. During his senior season in 2010-11, he earned the Most Improved Player Award due in large part to playing the most minutes of any walk-on in Tigers history. He made four starts for former head coach Oliver Purnell and was part of a Clemson team that finished 22-12 en route to winning its first NCAA Tournament game in 14 seasons.
