Phone: (417) 836-5250
Trevyor Fisher begins his seventh season as the director of basketball operations for the Bears in 2011-12.
The former Missouri State backcourt performer is no stranger to Bears basketball. Fisher graduated from Missouri State in 2005 with a degree in physical education and was elevated to the post of director of basketball operations when former coach Kyan Brown was promoted to a staff assistant coach in the late summer of 2005.
In his current assignment, Fisher has a variety of non-coaching duties for the staff, including film exchange with opponents for scouting purposes, academic monitoring of players, team travel and practice coordination, game equipment and budgeting.
Fisher also completed his master's degree at Missouri State in 2008.
The Springfield, Mo., native joined the MSU basketball staff following his playing career as a four-year basketball letterman for the Bears of coach Barry Hinson. Fisher became the 25th player in school history to play in over 100 games and finished with a final career total of 107 games played. He was a Missouri Valley Conference All-Academic team honorable mention selection three times and served as a Bears' co-captain in his senior season in 2004-05. He was the recipient of the Guy Thompson Award in 2005, annually awarded to the Bears' graduating senior player who best exemplifies academic and athletic excellence, leadership and sportsmanship.
Fisher played for his father, Mark Fisher, in both basketball and golf at Greenwood High School on the Missouri State campus. Mark is now district athletic director for Springfield Public Schools.
Fisher was a four-year basketball starter for the Greenwood Bluejays, was the Springfield Tipoff Club Player of the Year as a senior and was the Bluejays' top golfer each of his four seasons.
He and the former Kortney Burton, an MSU graduate and native of Grafton, Ill., celebrated their third wedding anniversary in August. They are the proud parents of a daughter, Kinley Reese, born May 31.
