The University of Missouri, and Head Coach Kim Anderson, have announced the hiring of Brad Loos as an assistant coach for the Tiger basketball program.
The 35-year old Loos has spent the last 12 seasons on the sidelines at the University of Central Missouri, as an assistant to Anderson in Warrensburg.
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.
Loos is the son of current Austin Peay State 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.
