Scott Jolly's 23-year coaching career included positions at the college and high school levels. He began as one of the youngest head college coaches in the nation as a 28-year-old at Union College in Kentucky and capped off his coaching career with a 12-year run as a head high school coach in Dallas, amassing a glittering 311-91 record. Remarkably, Mr. Jolly's teams played in the title game in 10 of his 12 years as a high school coach, combining for three State Championships, three State Finalist finishes, two SPC Championships, and two SPC Runner-up finishes. In the summer of 2005, the Global Games Select team (United States under-19 team) chose him to serve as Associate Head Coach for the prestigious Global Games, the preeminent international basketball competition held in the United States for under-21 year olds.

Recognized as one of the premier high school basketball coaches in Texas, Mr. Jolly most recently served for six years as St. Mark's Head Basketball Coach, compiling a 158-45 record overall. For the six years prior to that, success was the byword as his teams combined for a 153-46 record at Jesuit. Also, all six Jesuit teams ranked among the Top 25 in the Texas Hoops 4A/Others Public and Private Schools Poll, as well as at least #3 in the Texas Private Schools Poll. In his years at Jesuit, Mr. Jolly built a reputation for developing players to their fullest potential as 15 of his 48 senior basketball players went on to play at the college level.

Mr. Jolly has been involved in the administration of various camps for 36 years, helping to create outstanding experiences for over 19,000 campers. Under his direction, basketball camps at St. Mark's have increased from about 70 campers prior to Mr. Jolly's arrival to almost 700 attendees. Camps at Jesuit grew to 650 campers each summer. While Head Basketball Coach at Union College, Mr. Jolly directed camps that expanded from 70 campers in his first year to more than 500 campers just three years later, and at Mayde Creek High School in Katy ISD, he founded the Camp of Champs, which grew to 415 participants in three years.

Mr. Jolly serves as St. Mark's Senior Director of Leadership Gifts, working with major gift donors. Scott and his wife Karlene have been married 33 years and have three children.
