Matt Braeuer joins the Sam Houston men’s basketball staff as an assistant coach, Bearkat head coach Jason Hooten announced Tuesday.

Braeuer has worked the past two seasons as the video coordinator for men’s basketball at the University of Maryland. He also coached at Midland College and was a graduate assistant and three-year starter at Wichita State.

“Matt brings a lot to the table for us as an assistant coach,” Hooten said. “He was a successful player for a top program at Wichita State. The same tenacity and toughness he showed on the court will be a great asset for him in recruiting. He is a grinder.”

At Maryland, Braeuer was responsible for assisting with scouting, game preparation and video analysis of Maryland practices and games.

He arrived at Maryland after spending one season as an assistant coach at Midland. The Chaparrals went 33-4 and reached the NJCAA Division I national championship game that year.

Braeuer spent two seasons as a graduate assistant on the staff of Gregg Marshall at Wichita State. There he worked on film exchange, practice scheduling, community service events and was the director of Shocker Basketball Camps.

“Matt knows what it takes to succeed at the NCAA Division I level,” Hooten said. “He played on teams that reached the NCAA Sweet 16 and the NIT finals. He has coached in the ACC the last two years. He knows what it’s like to be on the big stage. Matt is a good teacher and will help us become better on the court.”

Braeuer ("BREYE-ur") played for his father, Ed, at Belton High School, where he started at point guard for three seasons. As a senior, he was a Texas Class 5A first team All-State selection, as well as a first team all-region pick. He was also named MVP of District 13-5A.

He was recruited by head coach Mark Turgeon to Wichita State and played for him for three seasons before Turgeon left to coach Texas A&M. Braeuer started for three seasons at point for the Shockers, where he helped WSU return to the NCAA Tournament, play in the Sweet Sixteen and earn a Top-10 national ranking.

Braeuer is in Wichita State's career top 10s in 3-pointers and games played and stands 11th in career assists and steals for the Shockers.
