Past Teams

Mark Dannhoff was hired as the new head coach for the Potawatomi Fire in the summer of 2022. He had recently completed his first season as the head coach of the Enid Outlaws, a professional franchise in the TBL (The Basketball League). Dannhoff is a motivated and experienced “program builder” with a history of successfully revitalizing and building basketball programs as a head and assistant coach, doing so with integrity, class, and a championship vision. He possesses a high level of competitiveness, dedication, and commitment to success.

In his first season, Dannhoff guided the Enid Outlaws to a regular season Central Conference Championship and a first-round bye in the TBL Playoffs with a 20–4 win–loss record (83% winning percentage). The Outlaws advanced to the Central Conference Finals only to fall short in the third game of the best-of-three series to the eventual TBL champion, Shreveport. In addition to having a very exciting, fast-paced, and explosive offense, the Outlaws finished first in the conference for the fewest points allowed per game and were among the leaders for the entire TBL for wins and winning percentage.

Prior to joining the professional ranks, Dannhoff had 30-plus years of basketball experience under his belt. He has been an assistant on eight Division I collegiate coaching staffs, including Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Georgia State, and Tulane. He has coached more than 70 players who have moved on to play at the professional level, including two players in the NBA (Linton Johnson and Sam Dekker) and four in the NBA Developmental G-League (Including Ra Shawn Thomas, John Jordan, and Bronson Koenig). In addition, he previously served as a member of the NABC D-I Assistant Coaches Committee representing the Southland Conference. During his time at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Dannhoff served as the lead recruiter for some of the top players in the conference including Ehab Amin, John Jordan, Jake Kocher, Zane Knowles, Kareem South, and Tony Lewis.
