In 2012-13, USU led the Western Athletic Conference and ranked third in the NCAA in rebounding margin (+9.1), while also leading the conference in rebounding defense (28.4 rpg).
Prior to joining the Utah State staff, Felton spent the 2007-08 season as an assistant at Sacramento State. In all, Felton brought nine years of coaching experience with him to Utah State and had coached 11 players who earned all-conference honors.
Felton began his coaching career as an assistant at Southern Utah during the 1999-2000 season, before spending two years at Cal State Los Angeles. He then spent the 2002-03 academic year starting the Texas A&M-International program and served as its head coach for three seasons, followed by another one-year stint as an assistant at Southern Utah before moving on to Sacramento State.
A 1999 graduate of Southern Utah with a bachelor's degree in physical education, Felton was a two-time IHC Health Plans state player of the year as a junior and senior. At the conclusion of the 1999 season he received all-Mid-Continent Conference honors and was named Southern Utah's Male Athlete of the Year, Men's Basketball Academic Athlete of the Year and team MVP. All-time, Felton ranks fourth in Southern Utah history in blocked shots (68), fifth in steals (139) and seventh in rebounding (505), leading SUU in rebounding in 1998 with 7.6 rebounds per game.
