Steve Schweer was officially named the 18th head coach in the history of the Illinois College Blueboys basketball program on April 23, 2018.
Schweer comes to Illinois College from North Central College, where he helped the Cardinals to back to back NCAA tournament berths and back to back CCIW title games. He has also had successful coaching stints at Monmouth College, North Park University, and Lakeland College. Schweer is a graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University, where he was a four year member of the men's basketball program winning three CCIW championships and competing in the NCAA tournament all four years as a player, including advancing to the final four in 2006.
Schweer is a member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches and has worked and directed camps throughout the midwest for over 15 years.
Illinois College head men's basketball coach Steve Schweer has named Coleman Reed as his new assistant coach. Schweer and Reed have worked together in the past, as Reed was a student-assistant at Monmouth College while Schweer was an assistant with the Fighting Scots.
A 2015 graduate of Monmouth, Reed was named the college's Senior Man of the Year in the spring semester of his graduation year. He was then hired by Monmouth as the Assistant to the Director of Athletics beginning in the fall of 2015. A year later, he returned to the hardwood as an assistant coach with the Monmouth women's basketball program. He has been on the sidelines for the past two seasons as Monmouth has made a leap in the MWC standings. As an undergrad, Reed was on the bench with the Scots for four years. In his senior season, the Scots compiled a 16-8 record and made the MWC Tournament for the first time in 16 seasons.
Reed and his wife, Clarissa, reside in Jacksonville.
