BRADY BERGESON NAMED HEAD MEN'S BASKETBALL COACH AT WESTERN OREGON
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — After three seasons at Sacramento State, Brady Bergeson is leaving the Hornets to become the head men's basketball coach at Western Oregon, it was announced today.
Bergeson has served as an assistant coach at Sacramento State since the 2008-09 season. His duties with the Hornets included recruiting and serving as the team's offensive coordinator. Bergeson also worked with the guards and assisted in scouting and academic development.
"I'm very excited for this opportunity to take over a program that is ready to turn the corner," Bergeson said. "I think the (WOU) team has a great deal of promise and I look forward to becoming part of their family.
"There's no question that my experience at Sacramento State has made me a better coach and prepared me to take over a program. Coach Katz has been an outstanding mentor personally and professionally and without him I would not be prepared to take on this challenge."
Western Oregon finished last season with a 13-16 overall record and was 8-10 in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference. The Wolves compete as a member of NCAA Div. II.
