Central College head men’s basketball coach Mike Boschee has announced he will be stepping down from his position with the Dutch to accept the same position at Bemidji State University in Minnesota.  

During his nine years at the helm of the Central men’s basketball program, Boschee turned around a squad that hadn’t reached the .500 mark in eight seasons, closing with an 80-49 record in the past five seasons to conclude his tenure at an even 115-115 mark at Central.  Among his recent successes were an Iowa Conference Championship in 2009-10 – which also included an NCAA Division III Tournament berth – and league Coach of the Year honors.  

Central College interim Athletic Director Eric Van Kley says a “swift and thorough” national search for a replacement will begin immediately.
