De Kok Selected as Basketball Coach

Posted: Updated:

When Joe Mueller became the basketball coach at Bismarck State, St.Mary's needed to find his replacement.

They found him on the same bench. Brent De Kok is the Saints' new boys head coach.

De Kok has been an assistant at St.Mary's for the past two years, and he's taking over a team that has a ton of talent on the roster.          

"It's a huge comfort level and it makes it a whole lot more comfortable for myself and the players included. Joe & I played at B.S.C. together a few years ago so we have a lot of things in common and I'm going to a lot of things the same so there won't be much that needs to be changed, a little tweak here and there but it will definitely make it a nice easy transition into," says De Kok.

De Kok graduated from Century, and he was a program director at the "Y" before coaching at St.Mary's.
