Meet Spenser Bland, MSUM’s new assistant men’s basketball coach. He juggles recruiting, scheduling, coaching and much more while he helps our Dragons shine in the upcoming season.
Q: What drew you to MSUM?
A: I originally worked here as a graduate assistant for three years after I finished college. I later came back after a break and now work as the top assistant coach. I love everything from the community to the campus and the relationships here.
Q: How do you start your workday?
A: I’m a big routine guy. I will always have an iced black coffee. I also check Twitter because it’s a big recruiting source.
Q: What is something you are learning right now?
A: Everything is constantly changing. The big thing right now is learning about students transferring schools and adjusting to that. Also just coming back to campus and being in my position now has been fun.
Q: What is your favorite thing about basketball?
A: The relationships. It’s a great way to get to know one another and help students succeed.
Q: If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
A: I’d be a dog. My own dog is spoiled. I’d eat, sleep, go on walks, bark at people and just be spoiled.
Welcome to the #DragonFamily, Spenser!
