Position:
Assistant Coach


Kyle Gerdeman has been instrumental in Central Michigan`s success on and off the court during his four years with the program.

Gerdeman's principle responsibilities include academics and scheduling while, on the court, his focus is on rebounding. He also oversees the statistical analysis of the team, identifying trends and tendencies and then implementing those results on the court.

In 2015, rebounding played a key role in the program's rapid turnaround and overall success. CMU out-rebounded its opponents for the year as a team. 

Under Gerdeman's tutelage, John Simons became the first player in program history to lead his team in rebounding in four consecutive years. A 2016 CMU graduate, Simons ranks sixth in program history with 776 boards.

In Gerdeman's seasons as an assistant coach under Keno Davis, the program has made major strides in the area of academics.

In 2016, CMU led the conference with four Academic All-MAC selections, twice as many as any other team. It marked the third consecutive year that the Chippewas had more players honored than any other team in the league. Following the spring semester, a total of 10 men's basketball student-athletes have compiled a 3.0 cumulative grade point average.

In 2015, CMU was one of 175 institutions and one of just 19 in Division I from across the nation to earn the Team Academic Excellence Award from the National Association of Basketball Coaches, which recognizes outstanding academic achievement by a team with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better.

Prior to coming to CMU, Gerdeman served as a three-year assistant at Southeast Missouri State, in addition to three years as a head coach at Moberly Area Community College.

Gerdeman assembled recruiting classes at Southeast Missouri State that helped the Redhawks more than double their win total in his three seasons on the staff. He helped develop Leon Powell, the nation's leader in field goal percentage and an all-conference performer in 2010-11.

A 1998 graduate, Gerdeman returned to his alma mater after three years as head coach at Moberly Area Community College and nine years as an assistant coach at Mineral Area College (2004-06), Moberly (2001-03) and East Central College (1998-2001).

During his time in the junior college ranks Gerdeman helped recruit and develop 23 players who went on to NCAA Division I careers, including 2005 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Player of the Year Eddie Smith.

He also mentored five NJCAA All-Americans, was part of three Region XVI championship teams and assisted Moberly to a fifth-place finish in the 2002 NJCAA National Tournament. Gerdeman has a master's degree in education from Central Methodist University. He and his wife, Angie, have three children, Alyssa, Karson and Harper.
