Dustin Yoder, a graduate of Okaw Valley school system, was recently given an assistant coaching position for Kansas State’s basketball program. The announcement came in late August following a move by head coach, Bruce Weber, which made Drew Speraw the director of basketball operations and Yoder the team’s video coordinator. Prior to receiving the position, Yoder was a graduate assistant during Kansas State’s groundbreaking 2012-2013 season, during which the Wildcats finished with a 27-8 overall record and received their first ever regular season Big 12 championship.

“These are well deserved promotions for both Drew and Dustin,” Weber said in an announcement. “I think staff continuity and chemistry is very important, and both guys were critical to the success we had last season.”      Login or Subscribe to read the rest of this story.
