Alex Fuller And Todd Schaefer Named Assistant Coaches

Todd Schaefer begins his second year as an assistant coach with Ole Miss for the 2014-15 season.

Schaeffer, who works with the Ole Miss guards, saw Ole Miss' wing players flourish during the 2013-14 campaign. Redshirt sophomore Gracie Frizzell nailed 58 three-pointers and shot .312 (58-1of-186) from behind the arc. Additionally Amber Singletary and Shequila Joseph also improved both shooting better than .300 from the field.

Schaefer, who comes to Oxford with 18 years of coaching experience at various levels in the college ranks, comes to Ole Miss from Arkansas State where he spent the previous two seasons as an assistant coach.

At Arkansas State, Schaefer's duties included working with the Red Wolves' perimeter players, opponent scouting and video. During the 2012-13 season with the Red Wolves, the team finished second in the Sun Belt Conference West Division and won 12 conference games.

A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Schaefer came to Arkansas State after serving the two seasons (2009-11) as the head coach at Greenbrier (Ark.) High School. Before coaching at Greenbrier, Schaefer was an assistant coach at the University of Cincinnati from 2007-09, where he coordinated the Bearcat offense and served as the director of opponent scouting, among other duties.

Prior to his time at Cincinnati, he spent three seasons at Arkansas Tech, including two as head coach during the 2005-07 seasons. While head coach at Arkansas Tech, he led the Golden Suns to a road victory over the top-ranked team in Division II basketball and a berth in the 2007 NCAA Division II Regional Tournament.

Prior to his time at Arkansas Tech, he served as head coach at Christian Brothers University in Memphis, Tenn. from 1999-2004. In his first season at Christian Brothers, he led the Lady Buccaneers to their first-ever berth in the Gulf South Conference Tournament. Four years later, Schaefer directed CBU to the GSC West Division title and to the NCAA South Regional Tournament for the first time in school history.

Before coaching at CBU, he spent two seasons as head coach at Allen County Community College and two seasons as an assistant at Western Illinois.

Schaefer earned his Bachelor of Arts degree while majoring in English at Thomas More College in Crestview, Ky., where he was a student assistant basketball coach and a member of the football team. He and his wife, Lisa have two sons, Landon (7) and Will (4).
