The Cardinal Stritch University Wolves have announced the hiring of Krayton Nash as the new Head Men’s Basketball Coach.
Nash was an assistant coach at Cardinal Stritch from 2009-12, where the Wolves went 78-25 in that span, including reaching the NAIA Division II Tournament all three seasons and a berth in the Elite 8 in his final season on the staff.
“I would like to thank Dan Kuklinski, Donney Moroney and the rest of the search committee for granting me this opportunity to return to Cardinals Stritch University,” Nash said in a statement. “I am truly humbled and excited to get back to work in this community and develop selfless, educated men of character and action.”
Nash has made stops as an assistant coach at Milwaukee Area Technical College, University of Minnesota Crookston, St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy, Concordia University of Chicago, Carroll University and his alma mater, UW-Platteville. During his playing career, Nash was a member of the UW-Platteville team that won the 1999 Division III National Championship team coached by Wisconsin legend Bo Ryan.
“I am very excited to bring Krayton Nash back to Stritch as the new head men’s basketball coach,” Athletic Director Dan Kuklinski said. “His resume and experience prove that he can win and develop players at any level, and we believe he can help bring this program back to the top of the conference and national stage.”
Cardinal Stritch has won one national championship in program history and that came with a 73-59 victory over top-seed William Penn (Iowa) in the 2013 NAIA Division II Men’s National Basketball Championship.
