Clint Weddle was approved as the new head boy's basketball coach at Northview High School late Thursday evening as the Clay Community School board approved the hiring.
Weddle completed his fifth season as an assistant coach with the Indiana State women's basketball program in 2011-12. He also served as the recruiting coordinator and worked with the Sycamore post players.
Weddle is a native of Terre Haute where he graduated from Terre Haute North High School in 1999. He followed up his career with the Patriots by playing at Oakland City where he finished as the program's fifth all-time leading scorer and was a two-time second team All-American.
Weddle began his coaching career in 2004-05 when he led Oakland City's women's team to a 17-12 record. The previous five years the program had finished below the .500 mark. The Lady Oaks finished in third-place in the National Christian College Athletic Association that season. Weddle also spent one season at the University of Indianapolis where he was the recruiting coordinator and assistant coach.
At Indiana State, Weddle joined assistant coaches Melanie Boeglin and Cammie Campbell to lead ISU to a 6-4 record over the final 10 games of the 2009-10 season after former head coach Jim Wiedie left the program.
As a player at Oakland City, Weddle holds the single-season record for 3-pointers made with 108 and also tops the career list. He averaged 15 points and shot 41 percent for his career at Oakland City.
