David Saur is in his second season as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Stetson University.

In Saur's first season with the program, Stetson set school-records for overall wins (27), conference wins (16) and longest winning streak (16). The Hatters also posted their first-ever NCAA postseason win, a 70-63 victory over Miami in the first round of the WNIT.

As one of the nation’s youngest recruiting coordinators, Saur’s first recruiting class with the Hatters saw him put together the #69 Recruiting Class in the country (first in the Atlantic Sun), according to the All-Star Girl’s Report.

In addition to his recruiting duties, Saur mentored the post players, including A-Sun Freshman of the Year Amber Porter and first team all-conference performers Sasha Sims and Porter. Sims and Porter ranked no. 1 and no. 2 on the team in scoring and blocked shots. Porter posted the highest single-season blocks total in school history (129) and the fifth highest blocks total for a freshman in NCAA history.

Saur previously served in a similar position at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), where in 2012-13 he helped lead the Hawks to a 23-9 record, an appearance in the NCAA Tournament, and a #12 national ranking. As the posts coach, he mentored forward Sarah Pastorek, an honorable mention All-American performer, and forward Lindsay Stamp, an NCAA Tournament Atlantic Region all-tournament team selection. As the recruiting coordinator, he helped secure a Division I transfer prior to the start of the 2012-13 season.

Saur also served as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at California University of Pennsylvania in 2011-12. As recruiting coordinator, he secured a commitment from a Division I transfer. As the guards coach, he mentored first-team all-conference selections Danielle Luckett and Amy Johns.

Saur previously served on the coaching staffs of both the men’s and women’s basketball programs at his alma mater, Thiel. During the 2010-11 season, the Thiel men’s program recorded a school-record 20 wins and went undefeated in conference play for the first time ever.

Saur has also conducted several skill development workouts, including a four-year stint with Washington Wizards assistant coach Joe Connelly. He has worked with several current and former NBA players, including Rudy Gay (Sacramento Kings), Donte Greene (drafted by Memphis Grizzlies), Sam Young (drafted by Memphis Grizzlies), and DaJuan Summers (drafted by Detroit Pistons).

A native of Sykesville, Md., Saur graduated from Laurinburg Prep in Laurinburg, N.C., in 2007. While at Laurinburg, he averaged nearly 15 points per game and helped lead the Tigers to a top-15 finish in the USA Today prep school rankings.

Saur earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Thiel in 2011 and his Master’s Degree in Sport Management from Cal in 2012.
