The Illini Bluffs graduate takes over for Bob Herdes, whose most recent stint at Shelbyville was a 60-24 three-year run.

The Rams have a tall order at hand: replace Illinois State recruit Malcolm Miller. Taking the reigns are juniors Kade Kull (12.8 points per game) and Brayden Nichols (10.0 ppg).
