Lady Techsters host Bears in first round action
During his first season in Ruston, Scott helped Louisiana Tech win 18 games – the most since 2010-11 – , finish fourth in the Conference USA regular season standings, and earn the program’s first national postseason berth since 2011.
Tech won seven straight league games down the home stretch to finish fourth, this after being picked to finish 12th in the preseason coaches’ poll, as the Lady Techsters earned an appearance in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament.
Stoehr comes to Ruston after four seasons at Northwestern State in Natchitoches where he played an integral role in re-establishing a winning culture of accomplishment within NSU women's basketball.
On top of three postseason appearances, including a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances, Stoehr helped develop three 1,000-point scorers, the 2012-13 Southland Conference Freshman of the Year (Janelle Perez), two first-team All-Louisiana selections and a first-team All-Southland Conference honoree.
Equally as important, every player who completed her eligibility at Northwestern State under Stoehr earned her degree from Northwestern State.
"Scott brings a wealth of experience to the Lady Techsters staff," said Brooke Stoehr. "His desire to see student athletes reach their goals both academically and athletically has been a driving force in the success of several programs. Scott is student of the game and is constantly looking for ways to help players develop and help the team become more efficient. He provides great balance for our staff and displays a passionate work ethic that brings out the best in those around him. I have a great amount of trust in him and the loyalty he has for the student athletes and program."
Stoehr, who received his degree in biology from Nebraska Wesleyan in 1997 and his master's degree in kinesiology from North Texas in 1999, began his coaching career at Nebraska Wesleyan University and followed that with stints at North Texas, Florida State, Arkansas-Little Rock and Louisiana Tech.
In his first position as a Division I coach, Stoehr helped guide North Texas to its most successful time in school history, including three conference division championships, two postseason tournaments and a 43-4 home record over a four year period.
He was a position coach for the 2002 Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year and the league's Defensive Player of the Year and was responsible for recruiting regions in Oklahoma and Arkansas.
At Florida State, he generated and implemented offensive and defensive game plans, coached the guards which included an All-ACC player, and assisted the team to its second highest win total and its second postseason tournament berth in school history at that time as a member of the ACC.
He followed that with a stint at Arkansas-Little Rock where he helped recruit the 2005 Sun Belt Conference's Freshman of the Year, and spent three seasons at Louisiana Tech where he assisted the Lady Techsters in making the NCAA Tournament and Top 25 appearances.
Stoehr, a former linebacker at Nebraska Wesleyan, and his wife have a 7-year-old daughter, Aubrey, and a 5-year-old son, Cooper.
