Ottawa University Adds Former Brave McClintock to Basketball Staff

Posted by Janae Melvin on September 29, 2015 in athletics, basketball, Braves, McClintock, men's, Phil The men's basketball team is bringing a familiar face back to Wilson Field House.

Phil McClintock ’10 has been named Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach, returning to the court where he was a two-time NAIA All-American and four-year letterman. In addition to working with the post players, he’ll also serve as recruitment coordinator for the team as well as an instructor in the School of Education.

“I am extremely excited to have Phil returning to the campus of Ottawa University,” said OU Head Men’s Basketball Coach Aaron Siebenthall. “I know that he will do great things, both on the court and in the classroom, as he did when he was a student-athlete here.”

During his time on the team, McClintock helped the Braves to one KCAC Regular Season Championship, one KCAC Tournament Championship, two NAIA Division II National Tournament appearances, and two NAIA ‘Sweet 16’ appearances.

Before returning to OU, he was the head boy’s basketball coach at Salem High School in Salem, Mo. Prior to coaching at Salem, he spent time on the sidelines at William Woods University as an assistant men’s basketball coach.
