MEN’S BASKETBALL: Beavers hire Iseman as new assistant coach
BEMIDJI -- Michael Iseman has been hired to be the top assistant coach for the Bemidji State men’s basketball program, head coach Mike Boschee announced Tuesday. Iseman joins the team after spending the last two seasons at the University of Jamestown in North Dakota.
“I’m ultra-excited to get rolling and to be at a great program like Bemidji State,” Iseman said in a press release. “I’m ready to work with a great coach like Mike (Boschee) as someone I respect and whom I’ve developed a relationship with, after being recruited by him at Central College.”
Iseman, a native of Archie, Mo., helped lead the Jimmies to the 2017 North Star Athletic Association regular season conference championship. Jamestown followed with a 20-win season for the first time since the 2014-15 season to finish second in the NSAA conference standings. Iseman was involved in recruiting, skill development, strength and conditioning and opponent scouting with Jamestown.
“We couldn’t be more excited about having Mike (Iseman) join our men’s basketball program,” Boschee said. “He is someone who has made great relationships early in his coaching career. He has impressed everyone along the way with his work ethic, organization and commitment to being successful.”
Prior to his time at Jamestown, Iseman spent the 2015-16 season as an assistant coach at Central College in Iowa, leading the Dutch to a conference title and a berth into the NCAA Division III Tournament. He was also a two-time letter winner at Central College and was a team captain during his senior season in 2014-15. In 2014, Central won the conference championship and played in the NCAA DIII Tournament.
Iseman graduated from Central College in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in business management.
