Former Wisconsin Aide Brian Hecker Joins McCallum's Staff

HOUSTON, Texas (June 15) - University of Houston head basketball coach Ray McCallum announced that former Wisconsin aide Brian Hecker will join his staff for the 2000-01 season.

Hecker comes to Houston after spending the last eight years with the University of Wisconsin's basketball program. He served as an assistant coach for the past six years after he was an administrative assistant for two seasons.

While he was at Wisconsin, the Badgers played in four NCAA Tournaments and earned two NIT berths. During the 1999-00 season, Hecker helped lead Wisconsin to the 2000 NCAA Final Four, which was the first Final Four appearance for the Badgers since 1941.

He also helped Wisconsin to a school-record 22 win in each of the past two years and earn back-to-back NCAA Tournament berths for the first time in school history. In fact, the Badgers have played in the NCAA during three of the last four years.

While he was at Wisconsin, Hecker served under current Badger head coach Dick Bennett and the Miami Heat's current top assistant Stu Van Gundy, In addition to his coaching duties, Hecker directed Wisconsin's summer camps and coaching clinics, handled scouting of Badger opponents and coordinated recruiting efforts. He also was in charge of the team's video operations.

Hecker was named an assistant coach in 1994 after serving two seasons as an administrative assistant at Wisconsin and coordinated all off-the-court activities for Stu Jackson's staff and the Badger program.

Some of his duties included coordinating official recruiting visits, team travel, the basketball budget and video operations. He also co-directed Wisconsin's summer camps and coaching clinics.

Hecker went to Wisconsin after serving as a high school coach at Nicolet High School in his hometown of Milwaukee. He is a member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches and serves on the Assistant coaches committee.

Born June 9, 1968, Hecker earned a bachelor's degree in sports marketing and management at the University of Indiana in 1990. He and his wife, Kari, were married in May of 1998.
