Coaching Staff


Paul Loos
Assistant Men's Basketball Coach

Paul Loos returns for his fourth season at the collegiate ranks in 2017-18 as a member of the BVU men's basketball coaching staff.

Since joining the bench in 2014-15, BVU has captured 43 wins and has a pair of top-three IIAC finishes.

Loos, who had served as head coach for the Newell-Fonda High School boys basketball team for 24 years, joined the staff in 2014-15 and assisted in helping the team win a regular season title for the second time in three years.

Prior to his tenure with the Mustangs, he also spent two years as the Fonda boys coach for two years before the schools merged.

During his tenure at Newell-Fonda, he compiled a career record of 434-192, guided teams to nine state tournaments and captured four state titles (1991, 1997, 1999, 2000).

Only three other coaches in the state’s history have won more state titles than Loos – Jim Eekhoff (Hull-Western Christian) and Paul Moon (Davenport) have each won seven while Iowa City West coach Steve Bergman has five.

The Mustangs carried a 25-0 mark and a #1 state ranking in Class 1A into the 2014 Iowa State Tournament before suffering their only loss of the year to eventual state champion West Lyon in the first round.  

Loos was inducted into the Iowa High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame in 2017.
