Tennesse-Martin tabs Schroyer as new hoops coach

Mar 21, 2014 - 2:40 PM Martin, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Tennessee-Martin has named Heath Schroyer its new men's basketball coach.

Schroyer spent the past three seasons as associate head coach at UNLV under Dave Rice and has Division I head coaching experience at Portland State and Wyoming.

"I am obviously very humbled and excited to be here," said Schroyer. "I think we are on the cusp of accomplishing some great things. I've been doing this quite a long time but I've learned a lot and I'm ready to bring all of those experiences to UT Martin. I am anxious to get started and start trying to accomplish our goals."

Schroyer guided Portland State for three years from 2002-05 and was the second-youngest head coach in Division I when he took over the program at age 30.

After two years as an associate head coach at Fresno State, Schroyer landed at Wyoming. He spent four seasons with the Cowboys from 2007-11 and posted a record of 49-68 when he was fired in February 2011.

Tennessee-Martin needed a replacement for Jason James, who was not retained after an 8-23 season.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
