He led Truett-McConnell to an 84-16 record in three seasons and three consecutive National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Top 10 finishes in 1993, 94 and 95. He was also named the NJCAA Region XVII Coach of the Year each of those three seasons, was the NJCAA District Coach of the Year in 1994 and was named the Atlanta Tip-Off Club Coach of the Year in 1993, 94 and 95. Carroll earned his bachelor's degree in health and physical education in 1990 from the University of Georgia, and added a master's degree in education and physical education from North Georgia College in 1992.

"Chris Carroll brings a great deal of experience to the University of Wyoming, particularly in the area of recruiting," said Fisher. "He has been very instrumental in bringing in several high school and junior-college All-Americans to Southern Mississippi, and I think he's done a phenomenal job recruiting. He also is an excellent floor coach. Having had three years of head coaching experience in junior college, I believe gives him a broader prospective as he comes to the University of Wyoming."
