  • 0

Chadron State hired former Bellevue University coach Shane Paben as its new men’s basketball coach, the school announced Thursday.

Paben replaces Houston Reed, who left in March to be an assistant at Northern Colorado. Reed was 22-88 in his four seasons at Chadron. The Eagles went 4-24 last year.

Paben led Bellevue to 10 consecutive NAIA tournaments and had a career record of 275-100. The 275 wins are a program record, and the Bruins reached the national semifinal in 2017. He last coached at Bellevue in 2019.

“I’m very excited for the opportunity to join Chadron State,” Paben said in a press release. “It’s a tremendous place to coach, with a wealth of possibilities for success. Hopefully, I can build a successful program and lead us to the NCAA tournament.”
