Buena Vista University first-year head men’s basketball coach, Trevor Johnson, has named Zack Jadzak as his top assistant coach beginning in 2019-20.

Jadzak had served as a graduate assistant coach at North Central College in Naperville, Ill., the past two seasons and was part of back-to-back NCAA DIII National Tournament appearances.  During his tenure, the Cardinals were 42-15 overall and he was heavily involved with working with a pair of First Team All-Conference selections as well as a Third Team All-American.

Prior to joining the Cardinals bench, Jadzak was an assistant men’s basketball coach and recruiting coordinator during the 2016-17 season at Aurora University while serving as the head assistant men’s basketball coach at Blackburn College in 2015-16.  Since May of 2014, he’d also been serving as the head coach of the 17-under Mercury Elite Basketball team based out of Wheaton, Ill.  Jadzak has been heavily involved with working at numerous Division I basketball camps since 2015, including camps at The Ohio State University, University of Illinois and at VCU.

“We are excited to add Zack Jadzak to our program,” says Johnson. “Zack’s passion and enthusiasm for the game showed throughout the interview process. His experiences as a player and time spent working with the fantastic coaches at North Central have prepared him well. We are fortunate to have him working with our student-athletes and are excited to welcome him to the Buena Vista community.”

Jadzak was a collegiate player at Saint Ambrose University from 2011-15 where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in education.  He also holds a master’s degree in leadership studies from North Central in June 2019.
