This week on Inside the Headset we are featuring University of Tulsa Cornerbacks Coach, Aaron Fletcher. Coach Fletcher discusses the importance of influences, shares the significance of the Legacy of Black Wall Street, and highlights what it means to be more than a coach.
Aaron Fletcher is in his sixth season as an assistant coach at The University of Tulsa. Fletcher has been a part of two bowl teams with the Hurricane, including the 2015 Camping World Independence Bowl and the 2016 Miami Beach Bowl.
Before joining the staff at Tulsa, Fletcher spent three years (2012-14) as an assistant coach at Houston Baptist University, where he was part of a coaching staff that instituted the football program at the school. Previously, Fletcher coached at three Dallas-area High Schools: DeSoto, Lancaster, and David W. Carter High School.
