Walter voted state's Newcomer of the Year

Scott Stoehr begins his third season as a member of the Louisiana Tech staff, his second as an assistant coach for the Lady Techster basketball program.

Stoehr, who served as the director of basketball of operations during his first year with the program, brings a wealth of collegiate basketball coaching experience to the staff after serving as an assistant coach at four other programs in his career.

His responsibilities at Louisiana Tech include scouting, on-the-floor coaching, recruiting and assisting with areas of the Techster video department.

"Scott has provided me with a coach with vast experience at several programs," Tech head coach Chris Long said. "He is a good teacher on and off the court. Along with Brooke, I feel we can develop our guards rapidly this year.

"He has worn many hats already for this program and simply gets the job done in a professional manner. With over 10 years of assistant coaching experience, he provides key insight in helping improve our team."

Stoehr's coaching career began in 1996 when he accepted an assistant position at his alma mater Nebraska Wesleyan before moving on to North Texas the following season. After five years in Denton, Stoehr left for Florida State before returning to North Texas.

Prior to coming to Tech, Stoehr served as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for Joe Foley at Arkansas-Little Rock in 2004-05 where he helped guide the team to the most wins UALR had registered since the rebirth of the program in 1999.

During his time with the Trojans, Stoehr was responsible for coordinating all aspects of the programs recruiting while maintaining relationships in the states of Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Louisiana.

He also was responsible for signing forward Renee Renz, who was named the 2006 Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Year.

During his time at North Texas, he assisted the program to its most successful period in school history, including three Conference Division championships and two post-season tournament appearances.

He served as the position co-coach for 2002 Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year Jalie Mitchell and 2002 SBC Defensive Player of the Year Rosalyn Reades.

He was in charge of practice and game preparation including scouting opponents, organization of game plans and preparing scouting reports.

Between his two stints at North Texas, Stoehr spent one year as an assistant coach at Florida State in 2002-03.

At Florida State, he helped lead the Seminoles to their second highest win total ever and its second post-season berth as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

He was also on the Seminoles staff when Florida State signed the No. 1 ranked point guard in the country in Dorian Williams.

The Plattsmouth, Neb. native earned his bachelor's degree in biology from Nebraska Wesleyan in 1997 and his master's degree in kinesiology from North Texas in 1999.

Stoehr's connection to Louisiana Tech began when he married former Lady Techster star and current Tech assistant coach Brooke (Lassiter) Stoehr in August of 2004.
