INTERIM TAG REMOVED: Bullock named Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Nebraska Wesleyan

Nebraska Wesleyan University’s Athletic Director, Dwight Merilatt, announced the promotion of Tyler Bullock to head women’s basketball coach. Bullock served as interim head coach for one year during the 2022-23 season. 

“I’m excited to announce Tyler Bullock as our permanent head women’s basketball coach,” said Merilatt. “Tyler has done a very good job of bringing our women’s basketball team together in a very short time. He has created a positive and energetic culture for our women’s basketball student-athletes.  I look forward to him leading our team and establishing a prominent presence within the American Rivers Conference.”

Arriving in late September, Bullock was able to enhance the team’s efforts and build a positive culture surrounding the program. This past season, the Prairie Wolves improved in almost every statistical category from a season ago.

“I am beyond excited to be returning next season as the head coach here at Nebraska Wesleyan,” said Bullock. NWU is a special place and the vision that Athletic Director Dwight Merilatt has for this school is an inspiration and something I am grateful to be a part of. There is a lot of work to be done starting this summer, however, I am looking forward to the challenges ahead.”

Bullock will serve as the 11th head coach in program history, dating back to 1974.
