Marshall, Mo. (May 20, 2014)- Missouri Valley College Athletic Director Tom Fifer has announced the hiring of Timm Dixon as the new head coach of the Viking women's basketball program. Dixon comes to Missouri Valley after spending the 2013-2014 season as an assistant coach on the NCAA Division I Idaho State University women's basketball staff. There, he served as the recruiting coordinator and guard position coach.
Prior to his time at Idaho State, Dixon spent the 2012-2013 season as head coach of the Lamar (Colo.) Community College women's basketball team, taking over the head coaching position three weeks prior to the season starting. Dixon led Lamar, a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) program, to an 18-12 overall record. Dixon has coached at the collegiate level since 2000 and, prior to his stops at Idaho State and Lamar, was an assistant coach at Pima (Ariz.) Community College, Glendale (Ariz.) Community College, Arizona State University and South Mountain (Ariz.) Community College. Dixon has a Master of Education in Special Education degree from Grand Canyon (Ariz.) University.
"We are very excited to have Timm join the Missouri Valley family and lead the women's basketball program," said Fifer. "Timm has a passion for the game that is very contagious and the desire to recruit and build the program."
Dixon takes over head coaching duties from Justin Rees who accepted an assistant coaching position at NCAA Division I Valparaiso University. In Rees’ only season as head coach the Vikings finished the 2013-2014 season with an overall record of 19-13 and a 10-8 mark in Heart of America Athletic Conference play.
