Missouri Western Director of Athletics Kurt McGuffin announced Tuesday that Brett Weiberg has been named head coach of the Griffon Men's Basketball program.
Weiberg comes to MWSU from Northern Oklahoma College where he has been the head coach since 2006 and replaces Hall of Fame coach Tom Smith who retired at the end of this past season after 25 years at the helm.
The 38-year-old, who has compiled 125 career victories in seven seasons, led Northern Oklahoma to a 27-4 overall record and the OCAC conference regular season championship in the 2012-2013 campaign.
Weiberg brings 15 years of collegiate coaching experience to MWSU and has experience in coaching at a multitude of levels. He began his coaching career in 1998 as an assistant at Blinn Junior College.
Following stints at NAIA Wayland Baptist University and Division I Texas-San Antonio, he found a home at Northern Oklahoma College where he spent five years as an assistant before becoming the head coach in 2006. In doing so, he succeeded his legendary father Mick Weiberg.
Prior to beginning his coaching career, he enjoyed a solid four-year playing career spending the first two years of it playing for his father at NOC and helping lead his team to two conference championships. He spent his last two years of eligibility at Division I Sam Houston State.
Weiberg was chosen from a pool of more than 200 applicants in a search process that began in mid-January.
