WAUWATOSA, WI (June 26, 2019) - Bryant & Stratton College's head men's basketball coach Matt Majkrzak stepped down on Monday as he has accepted the men's head basketball coaching position at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI (NCAA DII).

Majkrzak will carry over his successes from the NJCAA level to the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) where he will take over a program that is coming off a 17-12 season including 11-9 in conference play.

"Matt did a phenomenal job last year," said Bryant & Stratton College – Wisconsin Athletic Director Greg Brandner.

"We certainly thank Matt for everything he's done for Bobcats basketball. Matt is a rising star in coaching and we knew his time at Bryant & Stratton would be short because of what he has to offer. Northern Michigan is getting a great coach and even better person."  

In his lone season as head coach at Bryant & Stratton, Majkrzak led the Bobcats to its best record in school history at 25-8 overall and 19-3 in Region IV while advancing the program to its first-ever region championship game.

A first-year head coach, Majkrzak coached two All-Region players in Justin Brookens (Fr., Milwaukee Vincent) and Joe Duty (So., Adams-Friendship), who were key pieces to the programs accomplishments.

The Elkhart Lake native came to the Bobcats from NCAA Division II Bemidji State (Bemidji, Minn.) where he was the top assistant from 2014-18. Majkrzak also coached at Chadron State (Chadron, Neb., 2012-14) and four years at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (2008-12) as a student assistant coach. He also founded the Wisconsin Jets AAU program.

A nationwide search for a head basketball coach at Bryant & Stratton is underway. Interested candidates can learn more about the position and apply at bryantstratton.edu/careers.

Bryant & Stratton College is a NJCAA DII scholarship offering program.
