With Gulley on the coaching staff, Tulsa has won three Conference USA Cross Country Championships in the last two seasons, winning back-to-back men's titles in 2012 and 2013 and tying for the C-USA women's crown in 2013.

In addition to the men's team winning the 2012 C-USA title, the Hurricane also placed seventh at the NCAA Championships that year, while producing All-American Chris O'Hare. On the women's side, the cross-country team finished fifth at the NCAA Midwest Regional, the second-best finish in school history.

In 2012, Tulsa had eight men's athletes earn all-conference honors, while seven women received all-Conference USA accolades as well.

For track & field, Tulsa had three indoor champions at the C-USA Championships on the women's side and four C-USA medalists on the men's side in 2012-13. Gulley also coached two C-USA outdoor individual champions for women and one for the men that same season.

Prior to his appointment as a full-time coach, Gulley spent two years as a student assistant coach with the Golden Hurricane team. He assisted in home meet management, generated and maintained the recruiting database and assisted with the set-up of official recruiting visits.

He also spent one year on the athletic facilities maintenance staff at Tulsa, where he worked with venue set-up for basketball, volleyball and soccer.

Gulley earned his bachelor's degree in exercise and sports science from Tulsa in May 2012.
