TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State women’s basketball head coach Sue Semrau has announced the hiring of Scott Stoehr as an assistant coach for the Seminoles. Stoehr comes to Florida State from North Texas where he spent the past five seasons as an assistant coach with the Lady Eagles’ program. He replaces Roy Heintz who left the FSU last spring after two seasons to become the head coach at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Ga.
“We very excited to have Scott join our staff,” Semrau said. “We feel like he is a great fit for our staff and meets the needs of our program. Coming from North Texas, Scott is familiar with being a part of a staff who had success in building a solid program and because of that, he understands the building process. He has so much energy and enthusiasm and a great work ethic. He is also very knowledgeable about the game and we’re excited to have him work with our guards and their development.”
Stoehr (pronounced STORE) was responsible for the Lady Eagles conditioning program and worked primarily with the guard position. His duties also included scouting, practice and game preparation, film exchange and the breaking down and editing of game tape. In addition, Stoehr was closely involved with recruiting, its organization and correspondence. He also planned and coordinated North Texas’ Girls Summer Basketball Camps.
Prior to his coaching stint at North Texas, Stoehr served as an assistant coach for one year at Nebraska Wesleyan University, his alma mater. He worked as the post-position coach and coordinator for scouting, in-state recruiting and travel as well as the assistant strength and conditioning coach.
Stoehr graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan in 1997 with a bachelor’s degree in biology after earning a 3.88 grade point average. He garnered GTE Academic All-America honors in 1996 and was a member of the Blue Key and National Biology Scholastic honoraria’s. He also completed an impressive football career at the school in 1996.
Stoehr earned a master’s degree in kinesiology from North Texas in May 1999. The native of Plattsmouth, Neb., has worked numerous camps, including those hosted by North Texas, Iowa State, the United States Naval Academy, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the “Helping Kids Win” organization.
