A familiar face will be returning to the Hillsdale College men’s basketball sidelines in 2016-17.
Brandon Pritzl, a 2014 graduate of the Charger men’s basketball program, is back with the program, this time in the role of assistant coach. He will take the place of Luke Laser, who is relocating to Kansas City. Pritzl is entering his fourth season as assistant coach in 2019-20.
Pritzl is back at Hillsdale after spending the prior two seasons as a graduate assistant with the Ohio University men’s basketball program. While with the Bobcats, Pritzl was responsible for many aspects of the program’s day-to-day operations, including ticket management, keeping recruiting databases up to date, and working with the Jump Program and the school’s summer camps.
As a player at Hillsdale from 2010-14, Pritzl was a key part of two 20-win teams. He was a three-year starter at shooting guard and was twice named to the GLIAC All-Defensive Team (2011-12, 2013-14). In his career, Pritzl scored 843 points and started 81 games.
