Approaching the fifth year of his coaching career with the Jamestown men's basketball program, Tyler Peterson has been promoted to associate head coach, athletic director Sean Johnson and head coach Danny Neville announced Wednesday.

Peterson, who has been on staff for a Great Plains Athletic Conference tournament championship and pair of NAIA national tournament appearances, including an Elite Eight run in 2021, has been the Jimmies top assistant since June 2019. He was previously a graduate assistant for the program for two years after graduating from Northland College (WI) in the spring of 2017.

In Peterson's four years on staff, the Jimmies have amassed a record of 89-38 overall. The program has produced a GPAC player of the year, four NAIA All-American selections, and 16 all-conference selections during that time as well.

"Tyler is a big part of our program and very deserving of the title of associate head coach," said Neville. "Our program would not be where it is today without his dedication and hard work. He is not only a great coach but a great person that has a positive impact on the lives of our players and staff."
