Austin Meyer has been Northwest Missouri State's assistant men's basketball coach since the 2008-09 campaign, but he's been on the Bearcat bench much longer than that.


A native of Blue Springs, Mo., Meyer played four seasons for the Bearcats from 2002-06. He was the leading scorer and rebounder of the 2004-05 squad when he average 13.3 points and 5.4 rebounds. He remains Northwest's all-time leading three-point shooter with 215 made. His 1,294 career points rank sixth in program history.


Meyer won an MIAA conference tournament championship and made an appearance in the Elite Eight during the 2003-04 season when the team finished 29-5. A sophomore, Meyer led the team with 68 three-pointers and shot 42 percent from beyond the arc. He finished as the team's second-leading scorer with 11.5 points per game.


After earning his bachelor's degree in 2006, Meyer was hired as a graduate assistant under then-head coach Steve Tappmeyer, who would name Meyer his full-time assistant two years later. Together, they won the MIAA's regular season crown in 2007 and an MIAA tournament title in 2008. The team advanced to the NCAA tournament both seasons.
