Sadler is a native of Greenwood, Arkansas.
Sadler received his undergraduate degree from the University of Arkansas, where he was a student manager under legendary coach Eddie Sutton.
Sadler's coaching career started as an assistant with a string of schools before landing a head coaching job at Arkansas–Fort Smith and then at University of Texas at El Paso, where he took over for former Texas Tech Red Raiders head coach Billy Gillispie after previously serving as his assistant coach. At UTEP, Sadler led his team to a 48–18 record and two postseason appearances in his 2 seasons at the helm. He departed UTEP for the head coaching job at the University of Nebraska on August 8, 2006 to take over for former coach Barry Collier, who left to become the athletic director at Butler University.
At Nebraska, Sadler inherited a team that had been relegated to the end of the pack in the Big 12 Conference for several seasons, after former coach Danny Nee led the team to five NCAA tournament appearances, an NIT title and a Big 8 tournament title in the 1990s. Instead under Sadler's leadership, the Huskers were relegated to the end of the pack in the Big 10 Conference. He was fired on March 9, 2012 after six seasons without ever making an NCAA tournament appearance. While under Sadler at Nebraska, over 80 percent of seniors who finished their eligibility earned their degrees.
