Former Arkansas graduate assistant Zach Cooper joined the University of Houston Women's Basketball program as its video coordinator, head coach Ronald Hughey announced on May 15, 2014 .

Cooper came to Houston after spending two seasons (2012-14) as a team manager and assistant video coordinator for the University of Arkansas Women's Basketball program. In that role, he worked closely with the Razorback coaching staff to create scouting reports of various opponents, while also filming the team's games throughout the season.

"I'm excited to welcome Zach to our family," said Hughey. "He has a great mind for basketball, and his energy and enthusiasm fit the mold of the staff we already have in place. He comes from a successful Arkansas program, and we look forward to having him here at Houston."

In addition to analyzing and cutting film at Arkansas, Cooper served as an assistant to the director of basketball operations, aiding in the scheduling of games and developing the team's travel itinerary for each road trip.

Before his stint at Arkansas, Cooper was a four-year letterwinner forward at Central College in Iowa from 2006-10. A feared post defender, Cooper currently ranks second on the program's all-time career blocks list (110), and he is also placed second on the school's single-season blocked shots list, collecting 46 swats during the 2008-09 campaign.

While a student-athlete at Central College, Cooper also served as an intern within the athletic department and spent the summer of 2009 as a sales intern in London, England.

No stranger to the X's and O's of basketball, Cooper has also acted as the head coach and program director for Team Game Point Elite, an AAU program based in Dallas, Texas.

A native of Johnston, Iowa, Cooper graduated from Central College in May of 2010 with a bachelor's degree in marketing before earning his master's in recreation and sports management from the University of Arkansas in May of 2014.

Cooper is the son of Mark and Judi Cooper. He has one younger brother, who currently serves as a manager for the University of Iowa football team.
