Oregon Tech names Poetsch as Interim Head WBB Coach

Oregon Tech athletic director John Van Dyke has named longtime men’s basketball assistant Paul Poetsch the interim head coach of the women’s basketball program.
Poetsch replaces Scott Meredith, who recently resigned as head coach.
“We are grateful that Paul has stepped up to lead our program this season. The team has a great nucleus returning with a quality recruiting class. He will help make a seamless transition as we begin the process to conduct a national search for a new head coach.” 
Poetsch spent the past 13 seasons on the bench alongside head coaches Danny Miles and Justin Parnell, assisting on the Hustlin’ Owls 2012 NAIA Division II national championship team and was part of the 2019 squad that reached the national title game.
An All-Evergreen Conference selection as a player at Western Oregon, Poetsch has lived the last 38 years in the Klamath Basin – including four seasons as head girls’ basketball coach at Mazama High, twice earning Southern Oregon Conference Coach of the Year honors – and 24 years working as an administrator in the Klamath County School District.
Poetsch and the Lady Owls open the 2022-23 season the first weekend in November, hosting the OIT Lithia Classic.
