Jason Karys enters his first season as the Director of Basketball Operations for the Valparaiso University men's basketball program in 2019-20 after spending the last two seasons as a graduate assistant. His graduate assistant role has included preparing scouting reports for the coaching staff and team, co-directing Valpo basketball summer camps, analyzing game and practice film and assisting with the organization of travel and team meals.

Karys, who graduated from Valpo with his bachelor’s degree in sports management in May 2017 and his master’s in sports administration in May 2019, spent three seasons as a Valpo basketball manager from August 2013 to April 2016. During his senior year of undergrad (2016-2017), Karys walked on to the team and played in 11 games while scoring nine points.

Before arriving on Valpo’s campus, Karys played high school basketball at Newton South (Newton, Mass.), where he was a team captain and the recipient of the Reggie Stewart Award for outstanding character and leadership.
