Men’s basketball adds Dustin Yoder to coaching staff

Thursday, April 16, 2020

Dustin Yoder is the first new addition to the Southeast’s men’s basketball team. He was named assistant coach on April 15 by new Head Coach Brad Korn.

"Dustin has been a self-starter his whole basketball and coaching career to this point. We will value Dustin's work ethic and understanding that no task is too small in order to get the job done for our program,” Korn said.

Yoder has a history in college basketball that ranges across the country.

He spent the last two seasons as associate head coach at Cal State San Bernardino, and prior to that, Yoder worked as an assistant under Andy Newman at the University of Texas Permian Basin during the 2017-18 campaign.

Yoder and Korn also shared the experience of working at Kansas State University in 2012-2013.

During a period of five years Yoder worked firstly as a video coordinator, and later as the team's graduate assistant under Head Coach Bruce Weber.

Yoder spent three years at Parkland Junior College in Champaign, Illinois, as a student manager for the team, and one year as assistant coach.

"He has been involved and had a huge hand in winning cultures at every stop he has made in his five years as an assistant coach,” Korn said.

The next season of men’s basketball is scheduled to start in November, but has not yet been confirmed by the NCAA due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
