Positively Promoting the Student Athlete Since 1992

Bethel Parts Ways with Lightfoot


MISHAWAKA, Ind. – Ryne Lightfoot has separated employment with Bethel College. Because this is a confidential employment matter, we have no further details to provide at this time.


The Pilots Men’s Basketball program has a storied history and Bethel is committed to providing a smooth transition for players and fans. We have named Assistant Coach and former Bethel basketball player Drew Schauss as the interim head coach to provide leadership to the program while a search for a new head coach is conducted.


Coach Schauss and Athletic Director Tom Visker are in the process of communicating with current players, recruits and families to answer their questions and provide more information about plans for the future. We are grateful for the many students, alumni, and fans who support the men’s basketball team and look forward to many successful seasons to come.
