"I'm excited to have Todd join our Rebel staff," Insell said. "He brings a lot of experience not
only in recruiting but he also brings a wealth of experience on the court in the development of
players. He'll be working with our wing players and he's spent seven seasons as a head coach in
Division II. We are excited to have Todd, his wife, Lisa, and children, Landon and Will, as a part
of the Ole Miss family."
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.
