Florida College Head Coach Chase Teichmann announced Thursday that he added Jesse Repay, Bryan Doze, and Robert Rayle as assistant coaches to the Falcon’s coaching staff for the upcoming season.
“I’m really excited about the staff we have put together,” said Teichmann. “All three guys are from different parts of the country and are coming from different levels. They all are great people first and foremost who care about relationships with our student-athletes. I’m thrilled to get to work with them.”
Repay served this past season as an assistant coach at Eastern Oregon University (NAIA). He helped lead them to a 17-14 record. Before EOU, Repay was the graduate assistant for the Tiffin University men’s basketball program in Tiffin, Ohio. In his lone season with the Dragons, he helped guide the team to multiple program bests in both offensive and defensive statistics.
Previous to coaching at Tiffin, Repay served two seasons as an assistant for the Carroll College men’s basketball team in Helena, Montana. In his first season with the Saints, he helped guide the team to a 29-6 record, Frontier Conference regular-season and tournament champions, a number one seed in the NAIA Division I National Tournament, and an Elite Eight appearance. In his second year, Repay was promoted to lead assistant where he helped guide the team to a 28-6 record, Frontier Conference regular-season and tournament champions, a number two seed in the NAIA Division I National Tournament, and a Sweet Sixteen appearance. During his two seasons with Carroll College, the Saints finished in the top ten on the court and in the classroom with a team GPA of 3.35. The Saints also had a 100% eligibility and graduation rate over those two seasons.
Repay started his coaching career at H.B. Plant High School in Tampa, Florida, where he was an assistant coach from 2013-2016. During that time Plant had a 100% graduation rate, 2 consecutive conference team GPA awards, and 6 collegiate scholarship athletes.
Repay graduated from Saint Joseph’s College – Indiana with a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications. He was a member of the Saint Joseph’s Men’s Basketball Team from 2008-2012. He is a native of Ogden Dunes, Indiana, and a graduate of Andrean High School.
A native of St.Louis, Mo., Doze spent the last two years as a graduate assistant for Florida State University’s men’s basketball team under head coach Leonard Hamilton. He graduated from FSU with his Master’s degree from the number one rated Sports Management program in the country.
During his first year as a graduate assistant, Doze was part of FSU’s school-record 29 wins. 13 of the 29 wins were ACC wins, which was a program record. He also was part of FSU’s March Madness run, helping them reach the sweet 16 for the second consecutive season. His responsibilities included handling film during games, practices, and scouting other teams. He also assisted with on-court workouts.
During his second season, Doze helped FSU win their first regular-season ACC title. His last season with FSU was cut short during the ACC tournament because of COVID-19, but since FSU was the number one seed, they won the ACC tournament by decision. His responsibilities included assisting with travel preparation for away games (itineraries, meal orders, hotel bookings, flight schedules), helping with on-court workouts, handling film during games, and scouting opponents.
Prior to attending Florida State University, Doze attended Southeast Missouri State University where he obtained his undergraduate degree in sports management and minor in business while being a manager for the woman’s basketball team under coach Rekha Patterson.
Doze graduated from Hazelwood West High School in St. Louis, Mo.
Rayle comes to Florida College from NCAA Division II Carson-Newman University in Jefferson City, Tenn., where he served as the graduate assistant this past season. Rayle helped in many of the daily and game-day operations at Carson-Newman.
Prior to being named graduate assistant, Rayle was the lead student manager at CN for four seasons under head coach Chuck Benson. During that time, the Eagles posted four-straight winning seasons, including a 73-45 overall record, and one NCAA Tournament appearance. Rayle was on staff for two years while FC head coach Chase Teichmann’s brother, Grant, was a standout player for the Eagles. Rayle graduates in July with his Master’s degree in business administration from CN.
Rayle is originally from Knoxville, Tenn., and graduated with his undergraduate degree in sports management from Carson-Newman.
