Please join us in welcoming Chris Schoettelkotte as head coach of Upper School boys' basketball.
This enthusiastic leader brings a lifelong love of the game, as well as championship experience, to his role. He previously served as head coach of boys' basketball at Holy Trinity Episcopal School and at Northeast Academy, where he guided his varsity team to a state championship runner-up finish and was named TAPPS 1A Coach of the Year.
Chris feels his mission is to teach the game the "right way" and to help players reach their full potential. His coaching style involves a high-pressure defense that creates turnovers and leads to a healthy transition offense. Equally important to him is developing leaders and good men—teaching student-athletes how to win, and even lose, with grace is a critical part of his responsibilities.
Chris earned his bachelor's degree from Western Illinois University and MBA from the Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston. In his off time, he can be found coaching club basketball, watching basketball, and playing golf.Let's cheer on Coach Schoettelkotte with a howlin' Wolves' welcome!
