Greg Heiar Hired

Greg Heiar Hired

Update: We’ve created a stand alone coaches page for Coach Heiar.

Wichita State finished out the coaching staff this week by hiring Greg Heiar who was currently coaching at Southern Miss. Similar to the first hire of Dana Ford, Heiar has some connections with Coach Jans. Heiar played under Jans at Kirkwood Community College, and then was Jans’ top assistant at Chipola College. Heiar later became the head coach at Chipola and holds a few records, as well as a deafening record of 164-15. His last two years coaching were spent as an assistant at Southern Miss.

With Heiar’s background as a successful JUCO coach opens two doors for the Shockers in the recruiting department. As a JUCO coach he has connections with High Schools and Prep Schools around the country, but at the same time, he also has the connections with other JUCO’s to help secure JUCO talent. Expect to see more recruits coming from up north, near Chicago, as Heiar is known to be a successful recruiter out of Chi-town, as well as Dana Ford being from Illinois.

Welcome to the program, coach.

    The USM fans on their board were pretty mad about him leaving. So thats a good thing for us. Our staff is young and talented. Looks very bright for us.
