Brad Loos officially joined the Tiger coaching staff on Tuesday.
May 13, 2014
Columbia, Mo. - Mizzou Basketball Head Coach Kim Anderson continued to add to his coaching staff on Tuesday as he announced the hiring of Brad Loos as an assistant coach.
Loos, 35, spent 12 seasons with Anderson at the University of Central Missouri and was the program's Associate Head Coach over his final five years in Warrensburg. The Mules accumulated an impressive 274-95 record in those 12 seasons overall and won 116 games his five years as Associate Head Coach, which included the 2014 NCAA Division II National Championship.
"I am very pleased to add Brad to our coaching staff and know our student-athletes and our fans will enjoy getting to know him, his wife Jennifer and their children, Brady, Rhyan and Charli," Anderson said. "Brad was an instrumental part in our recruiting and player development at Central Missouri. He understands how we will build our program's culture and what it takes every day from a player development standpoint to get the maximum out of our young men in practice and in the classroom." A native of Clarksville, Tenn., Loos began his career as a graduate assistant at UCM in 2002 and was quickly elevated to a full-time assistant role two years later. He was instrumental in the success of the Mules as a part of three NCAA Final Fours, six MIAA regular season championships, four MIAA tournament titles, and seven NCAA Tournament appearances.
Loos also recruited numerous all-conference and all-region performers, as well as three All-Americans for the program. Last season UCM welcomed 10 newcomers to its National Championship roster and Loos played a key role in attracting that talent to Warrensburg.
"I want to thank Coach Anderson, Mike Alden and everyone affiliated with Missouri Basketball for this incredible opportunity," Loos said. "Our family has deep respect for Mizzou and what the program means, not just within the state, but nationally as well. I look forward to working with our student-athletes and our staff and am ready to get to work to help our young men reach their maximum potential."
Loos is the son of current Austin Peay State Basketball Head Coach Dave Loos and was a student assistant coach for the Governors after playing four years for his father. Loos was an outstanding student-athlete, and was named to the Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll four times as a player, and was the top basketball scholar-athlete for three years. He earned his bachelor's degree from Austin Peay in 2002 with a 3.8 grade-point average in Health and Human Performance. He received a master's degree from UCM in Sports Administration in 2004.
Loos and his wife Jennifer have three children, son Brady and daughters, Rhyan and Charli.
