After trying out for the NFL, Paulus joined the ranks of college basketball again. This time as a coach. In 2010, he was hired as an assistant coach at Navy. Then in 2011, he was hired by Thad Matta to the position of video coordinator for the Ohio State University basketball team. Eventually, in 2013, Matta promoted him to assistant coach and he coached there through last season.
Paulus was born in Ohio and raised in Wisconsin until his family settled in Syracuse, NY, where he attended high school at Christian Brothers Academy.
