Stephanie Schueler enters her fourth season as an assistant coach for the Air Force women's basketball team. Schueler, who coaches the Falcons' guards, arrived at the Academy in 2011 after spending the previous two seasons as the director of basketball operations for the women's program at Southern Miss.
As director of basketball operations for the Lady Eagles, Schueler was responsible for coordinating team travel, directing public relations and speaking events for the program and assisting with monitoring the players' academic progress.
Recognized as one of the best women's basketball talents to ever come out of the state of South Dakota, Schueler brings more than a decade of coaching experience, as well as a decorated playing career at the highest levels of the game.
Prior to her arrival at Southern Miss in 2009, Schueler spent a season at Stetson as an assistant coach. While there, her duties included working with the team's guards, being the academics coordinator and assisting in recruiting, scouting and strength and conditioning.
From 2007-08, Schueler was the head coach at Lancaster (N.Y.) High School, located in suburban Buffalo, N.Y. She also spent four seasons on the staff (2001-05) at the University at Buffalo, directing summer camps and organizing team travel, film exchange and scouting, as well as strength and conditioning workouts and working with the guards.
Schueler was an assistant at Missouri (1997-98) before moving on to Western Illinois for three years (1998-2001). Working with the team in the weight room was a part of responsibilities at these stops and she used these skills to become a personal trainer with the Lockport and Buffalo Athletic Clubs while living in New York.
Schueler was a standout guard for legendary coach C. Vivian Stringer at the University of Iowa from 1987-91, helping lead the Hawkeyes to three straight Big Ten championships, a No. 1 national ranking and four consecutive NCAA tournament appearances.
A second-team All-Big Ten selection as a junior at Iowa, Schueler received preseason honorable mention All-America honors entering her senior year. She went on to garner first-team All-Big Ten accolades as a senior in 1991, while finishing her career ranked third in Iowa career history for assists and steals.
Schueler's college success led her to a successful professional career in Luxembourg and Belgium, at the conclusion of which she served as the head coach for the Cadet Belgian National Team and ran a co-educational basketball school in the European nation as well.
A native of Sioux Falls, S.D., Schueler had a spectacular high school career as well, earning her induction into the Lincoln High School Hall of Fame in 2003. She won two state track titles each in the 100, 200 and 400 meters and was the South Dakota Gatorade Player of the Year for both basketball and track and field. In 1997, she became the youngest person ever inducted into the South Dakota Sports Hall of Fame and was ranked 37th for the Mount Rushmore State on Sports Illustrated's list of All-Time Greatest Athletes by State, published in 2000.
