REPUBLIC, Mo. -- Trevyor Fisher, who has served as Missouri State's director of basketball operations since the summer of 2005, announced late Monday (April 16) that he has accepted the position as head basketball coach at Republic (Mo.) High School. The hire was formally approved by the Republic R-III School Board on Monday evening.
A native of Springfield and product of Greenwood High School, Fisher played in 107 games for MSU from 2001-05. He earned his degree in physical education in 2005 and immediately joined former head coach Barry Hinson's staff that summer. He has since retained the director of basketball operations position with head coaches Cuonzo Martin (2008-11) and Paul Lusk (2011-present) and earned a master's degree from Missouri State in 2008.
"Trevor has meant a lot to this program and has been very valuable to me in my first year," Lusk said. "I consider him a true professional and a close friend. This is a great opportunity for him at Republic, and I wish him the very best. There's no doubt in my mind that Republic hit a home run with Trevyor and his family."
No stranger to the high school sports scene in Southwest Missouri, Fisher was a four-year starter at Greenwood and was named Springfield Tipoff Club Player of the Year as a senior while playing for his father, Mark. He also was named Greenwood's top prep golfer all four seasons.
"Being part of the Missouri State program as a player and coach for the last 12 years has been unforgettable," Fisher said. This will always be a special place to me, and I have greatly enjoyed the coaches, players and fans that have been so good to me during my time here.
"I am looking forward to the opportunity ahead of me. It's a great school district and a basketball program with great tradition. I look forward to being on the floor coaching, building on the great tradition there, and developing young men at Republic."
Fisher and his wife Kortney, have a daughter Kinley who will turn one on May 31. He will remain in his current role at Missouri State until his contract at Republic begins.
