BU men's basketball assistant Bidlingmyer departs for Wisconsin-Milwaukee

VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton University men's basketball assistant coach Brian Bidlingmyer is leaving the team to become the assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, head coach Al Walker announced.

Bidlingmyer will join his friend and former Marquette University colleague Rob Jeter, who took over as head coach at Milwaukee last month. The Panthers went 26-6 and advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 last winter. They were ranked 23rd in the final ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll.

"Coach Bid did a tremendous job at Binghamton," Walker said. "He is an outstanding teacher, tactician, mentor, and recruiter. We wish Bid the very best as he moves up the professional coaching ladder."

Bidlingmyer served two years with the Bearcats.

Walker's staff still includes associate head coach Lawrence Brenneman, who enters his sixth year in 2005-06, and assistant coach Marlon Sears, who will begin his fourth year with the program in 2005-06. A national search for Bidlingmyer's replacement is underway.
