Given to Fly: Clint Weddle makes jump to Division II assistant coach

TERRE HAUTE — Terre Haute native Clint Weddle took a few steps up the women’s college basketball coaching ladder in May when he was hired as an assistant coach for the University of Indianapolis, which plays in the Division II Great Lakes Valley Conference.

Hired by the Greyhounds at the age of 25, Weddle had already picked up two years of experience as a head coach at Oakland City University.

Weddle’s coaching career for the Mighty Oaks commenced as soon as his playing career for the Oaks concluded. He finished as Oakland City’s fifth all-time leading scorer, taking second-team All-American honors in the National Christian College Association during his junior and senior years.

Weddle, who said he was more of a defensive stopper during his days playing for coaching legend Jim Jones at Terre Haute North, was a shooter for the Oaks.

“I don’t know what happened, I started scoring a lot of points,” Weddle said.

He holds the single season record for 3-pointers (108) and the career record for 3-pointers.

In addition to a stellar playing career, Weddle accumulated a collection of degrees: a B.S. in business management and a B.S. in business education with a minor in psychology and a vocational education endorsement and a master’s degree in scientific management.

Weddle was no stranger to women’s basketball, having watched as many of his younger sister Kristen Weddle’s games at Terre Haute South and Indiana State as his busy schedule allowed. Kristen finished up her successful basketball career for Coach Jim Wiedie this spring. The former Sycamore has taken her talents to the business world, working with the sales/marketing team at WTHI-TV 10.

“With Kristen playing, I was fortunate to watch her whenever I could,” Weddle said. “I was familiar with the women’s game. [The Oakland City job] just seemed like the right fit for me.”
