About six weeks after his brother left John A. Logan College to become an assistant coach at the University of Missouri, Tyler Smithpeters has been named the Logan’s new Head Men’s Basketball Coach.

Smithpeters has spent the past four years as an assistant under his brother Kyle.

During his time as an assistant, the program earned three consecutive Region 24 titles and produced two of the last three National Players of the Year.

A native of Harrisburg, Smithpeters led his team to a state title in 2013.

He went on to play four years at SIU, where he was named the Missouri Valley Conference Sixth Man of the Year and MVC All-Bench Team Captain in 2018.
