Marc Hostetter named men's basketball assistant coach

Hostetter rejoins USI men’s basketball staff
The University of Southern Indiana Athletic Department welcomes back one of its own, Marc Hostetter (Lyons, Indiana), to be a men’s basketball assistant coach. Hostetter joins new USI Head Coach Rick Herdes, who was promoted in April.

Hostetter rejoins the USI program after spending two seasons as an assistant coach to Mike Leeder at Longwood College in Virginia. Last season, Hostetter helped lead the Lancers to a 23-8 overall record, Longwood’s first-ever Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference championship, and an NCAA Division II Tournament appearance.

“Marc has the complete package, both as a person and a coach,” said Coach Herdes. “His knowledge of the league and Division II basketball helps make an easier transition from Coach (Bruce) Pearl to myself. I recruited Marc to USI and his knowledge of the system and University will be a great asset to my program.”

The Lyons, Indiana, native comes back to the USI team he helped lead to the 1995 NCAA Division II National Championship and posted a 105-17 record in four seasons as a point guard. During Hostetter’s four seasons, the Screaming Eagles were ranked number one nationally at one point during the season in three of four seasons.

After his playing days, Hostetter joined the staff of former USI Head Coach Bruce Pearl for two seasons as an assistant coach. During his two seasons on the bench, USI finished as the GLVC Tournament runners-up twice while making a pair of NCAA II Tournament Sweet 16 appearances.

“It is gratifying for a student athlete to come back to the athletic family,” said USI Director of Athletics Steve Newton. “Coach (Rick) Herdes is putting together a high quality staff to help USI maintain the national presence he helped build the last nine seasons.”

A 1998 USI graduate, Hostetter returns to Indiana with his wife, the former Nikki Jordan. The couple was married June 3, 2000.
