Assistant Women's Basketball Coach Bob Kohler
Bob Kohler was hired as the assistant women's basketball coach in April of 2002.
Kohler was Concordia's head women's basketball coach for three seasons from 1992 through 1995, but had to resign from the position due to medical reasons. He has been an assistant football coach throughout his tenure at Concordia and also teaches in the Health and Physical Education department.
Kohler began his career at Concordia as the assistant men's basketball coach. He was the assistant from 1986 until 1991, when he took over the women's program. Before coming to Concordia, Kohler had 25 years of experience coaching at both the high school and college level. He is a 1969 graduate of Valley City State University and went on to earn his masters degree from Northern State.
He is excited to get back into coaching college basketball again and said it will help him "fill a void" that was left when he stepped down during the 1995-96 season. His record as head coach was 58-22 and he held an impressive 49-11 mark in MIAC play. Kohler said, "I am very excited to be back in coaching because I enjoy working with the student athlete. It will give me an opportunity to teach a whole new generation of Cobber women's basketball players."
Kohler went on to add that, "I am happy to be working with Coach Odegaard because I feel that he will be a great coach and tireless recruiter."
In addition to his duties with the basketball team Bob serves as an assistant football coach and also teaches in the Physical Education Department.
Bob lives in Moorhead - as do his two sons, Scott and Tyler. Bob's wife
Nancy and son Brady passed away in 1999.
