Brian Ortmeier enters his first season as the Lady T's assistant basketball coach.  Ortmeier, a native of Dodge, Neb., comes to Dakota State after serving three seasons as McPherson women's basketball assistant coach, head junior varsity coach and resident director.

Ortmier is a 2009 graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with his bachelor's degree in political science.  He continued his education at Virginia Commonwealth University where he graduate with a Master's degree in Sports Leadership in May of 2010.
