Brothers promoted to USI men's basketball assistant coach
EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Southern Indiana Department of Athletics announced the promotion of Aaron Brothers to men's basketball assistant coach. Brothers replaces Bob Ward, who became the head coach of the Greenbrier High School (Greenbrier, Tennessee) boy's basketball program this summer.
Brothers was a graduate assistant coach at USI the last two years, while working toward a Master of Business Administration degree.
Prior to coming to USI, Brothers earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Indiana Wesleyan University and was a member of the men's basketball program. He finished his collegiate basketball career as IWU's third all-time leading scorer.
The Evansville, Indiana, native also was a two-sport letter winner at Memorial High School.
"Aaron has been an integral part of our program the last two seasons," said USI Head Coach Rick Herdes. "He's a young man with a great work ethic and the people skills to be a great recruiter. Our biggest obstacle will be to find a person who has the skill to fill Aaron's former position."
