Prior to Barclay College, Bryan started his coaching career as the head freshman coach at Scott County High School in Scott City, KS in 2003-04. The following two years he worked as the graduate assistant for the Southwest Baptist University Men's Basketball program where he earned his masters degree in Educational Administration. In 2005-06 he helped lead the Bearcats to an MIAA regular season and tournament championship as well as a #1 seed in the NCAA Division II national tournament. In 2007-08 he became the head coach at Walnut Grove High School in Missouri and then from 2008-2010 he was the head coach at Greensburg High School in Kansas.

Bryan is a native to Haviland High School and graduated from there in 1999.
