Bruggeman will have a wide variety of responsibilities, and will help guide and transition the program following a 19-12 finish to last season.

Bruggeman not only bring the operations experience needed for the position, but can also relate to the athletes as well, having been a college athlete himself:
"Bruggeman played four seasons of collegiate basketball at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. He was voted team captain his senior season before an injury sidelined him for the remainder of his career."
Eric Peterson was named the new Head Coach of the USD Coyote Men back in March, as he took over for Todd Lee, who was let go after four seasons.
