Wayne State College has named Jeff Kaminsky as its new men’s basketball coach. Kaminsky just completed his 11th season as head coach at Valley City State University in North Dakota where he coached the Vikings to a 22-11 record and a share of the North Star Athletic Association regular season championship. Valley City State advanced to the second round of the NAIA Division II National Tournament for just the second time in program history.
“We are excited to have Jeff Kaminsky take over the leadership of our men’s basketball program,” said Wayne State athletic director Mike Powicki. “Jeff has numerous years of head coaching experience at various levels and brings a track record of successfully re-building programs in challenging situations. Jeff showed he has a vision for the future of Wildcat men’s basketball and a clear plan for how to get there.”
Kaminsky has 29 years of collegiate head coaching experience and brings 452 career wins to the Wildcat program. He also served as head coach for 11 years at Wisconsin-Superior (1994-2005) that included four years as interim athletic director from 2000-2004 and spent seven years as head coach of Mid State Technical College in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin where he re-built a struggling program and recorded a 153-70 record with three consecutive Wisconsin Junior College Championships.
