The Brandon University Bobcats are pleased to announce the
addition of assistant coaches Chad Jacobson and Mike Woollard to the
men’s basketball program lead by incoming coach Mike Raimbault.


Born and raised in Brandon, Manitoba, Chad Jacobson is a graduate of Neelin High School. Jacobson spent three seasons with Minot State University before returning to Brandon to play for his hometown Bobcats, where he was instrumental in leading the 2006-07 team to a number one ranking and the national championship game. Jacobson is currently working on completing his degree in Business.

“Its an honor," says Jacobson. "I am looking forward to and really excited about working with Coach Raimbault. It will be a great experience to continue my relationship with this program.”

Saskatchewan native Mike Woollard returns to Canada from Minot, North Dakota where he spent the last two years working with the Minot State University Beavers while pursuing his Master's Degree in Education. Coach Woollard was heavily involved in on the floor coaching, development of the post players, advanced scouting and academic advising while at Minot State.

“I am really excited to be afforded the opportunity to work with Coach Raimbault and the student-athletes here at Brandon University'" says Woollard. "Being a Bobcat means a lot around here and I am blessed to be a part of things.”

“Chad is a great addition to the coaching staff,” says Coach Raimbault. “He brings a great deal of experience in terms of the things that we have been doing the past two seasons. We are fortunate to have Chad continuing to be a part of our program.”

“Mike spent the past two seasons working in a great system at Minot State,"

Raimbault continues, "and I am looking forward to working with him in the upcoming season.”
