Alan Foster is back at helm of the Bacone Men's basketball program as the head coach, which will mark his 12th season starting in Fall 2011 which began in 2001.
During his tenure at Bacone, Coach Foster has elevated the Warrior basketball program to new highs. Most recently during the 2010-2011 season he coached two Warriors to sports on the Red River Athletic All-Conference teams in Chad Tyler and James Scott.
Previous to that, he watched the Warriors battle their way by winning 12 of their last 13 games to claim the 2009-2010 RRAC Tournament title which gave Bacone it's first-ever NAIA Division I National Tournament appearance.
The accolades did not stop there as he coached two more players to spots on the RRAC All-Conference team which ended with a player being named the 2009-2010 RRAC Player of the Year and also a spot on the NAIA All-American Third Team.
Foster's players are not the only ones to have been honored during his time at Bacone. In the 2003-04 season he collected the RRAC Coach of the Year honors where he oversaw the Warrior program transition from junior college competition to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

During the 1990-1992 seasons, Foster served as an assistant for Missouri Hall of Fame coach Bill Barton at State Fair Community College. From 1989-1990, Foster was the head boys basketball coach at Niangua High School in Niangua, Mo., where he rebuilt a struggling Cardinal program.
He started his coaching career as a student assistant at Missouri Southern College in Joplin. He served on that coaching staff from 1986-1988 was a part of the Lions National Tournament team.
In addition to his head coaching duties, Foster also serves as the Assistant Vice President of Athletics at Bacone College and as Athletic Director.
