Mike Boschee has been named the 16th head coach of the Bemidji State University men’s basketball program. Director of Athletics Dr. Rick Goeb has announced the hiring of Boschee, a 22-year veteran in the coaching profession, most recently as the head coach at Central College in Pella, Iowa.
“Mike is a great fit for the men’s basketball program at Bemidji State University,” Goeb said. “He is extremely well respected in basketball circles. He’s developed winning traditions at Central College and Gustavus and he’s done the it the right way, with quality student-athletes.”
Boschee (BOE–she), who officially begins his duties at BSU immediately, replaces Matt Bowen, who resigned in May after a six year tenure (2006-12) capped by a program-best 22 wins and BSU’s second appearance in the NCAA Division II Tournament.
“My family and I are thrilled to be apart of Bemidji State and the community,” Boschee said. “I’m honored Rick and the BSU administration have chosen me to lead the program into the future. This is an exciting time to continue building a tradition of good basketball with people who are committed to being successful.”
Boschee completed his ninth season as head coach at Central College in 2011-12 and guided the Dutch to an 18-8 overall record.
