With approval from the NCAA, Nored took over the coaching duties of the team in early 2011, even doing some work as during the Bulldogs' run to the national championship game.

"I like how the game works," said Nored in a story done that aired on Fox 59 on March 27, 2011. "I like having to figure out different situations from the sideline."

Nored played for four seasons at Butler, starting on-and-off during his tenure under head coach Brad Stevens. Known for his defensive skills, Nored helped the Bulldogs to a pair of NCAA Final Four appearances and a collection of Horizon League season and tournament championships. 

As one of the leaders on a young team in the 2011-2012 season, Nored averaged 7.8 points and 5.2 assists a game.
