There never was any moment when Ken Ammann "decided" he wanted to be a coach. In a way, it was always a given, it was in his blood.
Ammann's parents taught and coached at Edison and Fountain Valley high schools, so it was natural for Ammann to find his way back to school after he completed his own education.
Even his time as a kid when he roamed the sidelines as a ball boy for Edison football games along with future NFL quarterback Todd Marinovich was an experience from which he learned.
After bouncing around a few different places as an assistant coach, he landed at Concordia University in Irvine in 2001 as the school's new men's head basketball coach, and the rest is school history.
Ammann got his 300th career win on Jan. 24 with a victory over Point Loma Nazarene, a notable achievement, but "it doesn't get me excited," Ammann said. "It's just a number."
