"Oliver brings over 30 years of coaching and development experience with him which is what our players and staff need to get to the next level. Oliver has coached teams in the CBA, USBL, ABA, Canadas NBL as well as in the NBA with the Milwaukee Bucks under George Karl. One of the top 10 minor league coaches of all time as well as CBA coach of the year. We are very honored and humbled at the fact he will be leading us all to new levels of excellence." Said Anita Crump owner. Olivers first challenge will come this week as The Gladiators will donate their time and skills to helping the community with several events encluding The Tour D Georgia, visits to elementary schools and will conclude with a Charity game set for this weekend.
