Before coming to Weston, Hager had spent the previous three and a half seasons as the associate head coach for Greg Curley, at Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. Hager played an important part in building a championship caliber program, which ascended the Eagles to conference championship games in 2007 and 2008.

After averaging over 10 points per game for his career, Hager was named the Jack Oller Most Valuable Player his senior season and received the William R. Smaltz Award in 2001. During his time at Juniata, Hager was the student-athlete representative on the NCAA Interpretations and Legislations Committee and worked as an intern with Auburn University compliance office during the summer months.
After earning his BA in Management/Marketing from Juniata, Hager completed a Master of Science in Athletic Coaching Education at West Virginia University in 2003.
