Bio entering 2012-13
David Velasquez enters his 11th season at San Diego State and his sixth as the Aztecs' director of player development.
Velasquez assists the basketball coaching staff with video breakdown, film exchange, travel, community service and handles many of the day-to-day office duties.
Prior to his current position, Velasquez was a student manager for the 2002-03 season before serving as head manager from 2003-07.
In 2002-03, San Diego State earned a berth to postseason NIT where the Aztecs picked up their first Division I postseason tournament victory en route to an appearance in the second round.
Then in 2005-06, San Diego State won the Mountain West Conference by going 13-3 and went on to win the MW tournament. As a result, the Aztecs advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second time under head coach Steve Fisher and won a then school-record 24 ballgames.
During the 2006-07 season, Fisher awarded Velasquez a scholarship in December 2006 and was added to the active roster in January 2007.
As an official playing member of the team, Velasquez played in four games and recorded a steal. He was a member of a team that finished with a 22-11 record and advanced to the second round of the postseason NIT.
In Velasquez's five seasons as manager, the Aztecs went to the postseason three times and won 22 or more games twice.
Following his graduation from San Diego State in May 2007, Velasquez was hired at the University of the Pacific later that month. As the Tigers' graduate manager, he assisted with Pacific's camps, created highlight tapes and coordinated film exchange before returning to his alma mater.
Since his return, SDSU has recorded five more 20-win seasons, including four with at least 25 victories, and reached the postseason in each of the last five years.
