Meet the New Gally Hoops Coach

Gallaudet's new men's basketball coach is Brendan Stern. He played for the Bison as an undergrad before serving as an assistant coach for three years. He also coached the Lady Bison through one season,  including All-NEAC third team Britny Latham. The team went 8-16 under Stern. He's taking the place of Jeb Barber, who compiled a 50-76 record in five seasons. Stern said, "It is a very exciting time to be a part of the Gallaudet men's basketball program. I want to thank Athletic Director Michael Weinstock for showing the confidence in me. I am grateful for this special opportunity and look forward to getting to work with our returning student-athletes, recruits and coaches so we can become the best we can be for the upcoming 2012-13 season." After graduating from Gally in 2006, Stern earned master degrees from American University and Catholic University of America and is now working on his Ph.D. in American Politics. He has been teaching American Politics at Gallaudet University for the past four years.
