Conroy came to Tennessee in 2001 after serving as the Director of Basketball Operations on Buzz Peterson's coaching staff at the University of Tulsa for the 2000-01 campaign.
Prior to joining Peterson's staff at Tulsa, Conroy spent three years as the head coach at Francis Marion University in Florence, S.C. In three seasons at Francis Marion, Conroy recorded a 41-40 overall record.
In his first season at Francis Marion he led the Patriots to a 16-11 record, which was an improvement of 13 wins from the previous season and ranked as the biggest turnaround in NCAA Divisions I and II that year. Picked to finish last in the Peach Belt Athletic Conference that season, the Patriots finished in second place. His team's accomplishments netted Conroy the 1998 conference coach of the year honors.
