Scheuer steps down as boys head coach
For the Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Marshfield High School will have a new boys basketball coach next season. Scott Scheuer is stepping down after five seasons as Tiger head coach to spend more time with his family.
Scheuer said that the coaching position started out as a one-year deal.
“One year turned into five,” he said. “I realize now, with a freshman in college and a freshman in high school – obviously now they are both going to be sophomores – that I am running out of time to have my kids close and be able to do things.
“My daughter is a dancer and my son is a tennis player, and I really don’t know a whole lot about either one; so, I wanted to follow them when they wanted me to and just be available to hang out and have them around. I didn’t want that to pass and then look back and say, ‘Geez, I wish I would have done a little bit different, as far as my priorities.’ Meaning, my two kids are my highest priority, and then I’ll work with other kids.”
Scheuer succeeded Bill Zuiker as head coach in 2015, and was 76-45 in five seasons, winning at least 14 games in every season as head coach.
His Tiger team advanced to the regional finals each of the last two seasons, and played in the sectional final in 2018 and the sectional semi-final in 2017.
Scheuer played for the Marshfield Tigers in the mid-1980s, and later played college basketball at Cardinal Stritch.
He also served as girls basketball coach at Milwaukee-University School before returning to Marshfield as a physical education teacher. Scheuer has also coached in the Tiger football program, and served as strength and conditioning coach for all of Tiger athletics.
