Beatrice Orangemen Basketball Coach Jim Weeks Moves On To The Next Level

A passion for coaching and a stellar work ethic has been a trademark for Beatrice Orangemen basketball coach Jim Weeks.

Those pair of traits caught the eye of Doane College Athletic Director Greg Heier.

After 24 years as the head boys basketball coach at Beatrice High School, Jim Weeks moves up to the next level by being named last Friday the new mens basketball coach for Doane College in Crete.

Weeks replaces Ian Brown who resigned following 10 years as the mentor for the Doane College mens basketball program.

The Tigers finished 10-19 last year, including going 5-15 in the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC), and have had just three winning seasons in the past 10 years.

A Fairbury native, Weeks graduated from Doane College in 1985, and was a four-year letterman for the Doane College Tigers track and field team.
