New Director of Video Operations for Miami Redhawks | People
OXFORD, OH (FOX19) - Miami University head men’s basketball coach John Cooper completed his staff with the hiring of Brandon Lincoln as the RedHawks’ Director of Video Operations. He begins his duties with the Miami staff on August 1.
“We’re excited to bring Brandon on board. He comes from a very successful program and played for the University of Oregon when they were extremely good,” said Cooper. “I had the opportunity of coaching Brandon the first couple of years of his career, and he was a very good player. After playing overseas and then serving as a graduate assistant at Oregon, hopefully this will be a seamless transition for him and will allow him to grow and see different things as someone who is trying to rise up through the coaching ranks. He will be handling all of our video operations. As a player, he was a quality person and someone who always represented the program the right way, and I really look forward to working with Brandon in this capacity.”
Lincoln spent the last two seasons at the University of Oregon as the Ducks’ graduate assistant manager. Last season he also served as the team’s video coordinator.
While on the Oregon staff, Lincoln worked closely with the team’s director of operations, while assisting in other day-to-day team tasks. Prior to Oregon, he served as the youth sports program coordinator for the Beaverton Hoop YMCA.
Lincoln played professional basketball for two years in Germany following his collegiate career at Oregon. He helped ETB Essen to the 2008 German Pro B Championship, and his team was promoted to the Pro A Division for the 2009 campaign.
During his collegiate career, Lincoln was a standout guard at Oregon, playing in 117 career games for the Ducks from 2003-06. The Ducks advanced to the NCAA Tournament in his freshman season and to the NIT Final Four in his sophomore campaign while Coach Cooper was on the Oregon staff.
He was a standout prep player at Jefferson High School in Portland, Ore. Lincoln ranked as the nation’s No. 67 player by ESPN.com and the No. 2 player in the state of Oregon. He was one of 43 prep players invited to the 2001 USA Basketball youth development festival.
Lincoln earned his bachelor’s degree in political science in 2006 and his master’s degree in educational leadership in 2012 from Oregon.
