Ribble Brings History of Associations with Outstanding Coaches


Lyons, Joe, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


Dale Ribble comes by his love of coaching basketball naturally.

"I grew up around basketball and I've been lucky enough to be associated with some outstanding coaches," said Ribble, 26, the new men's basketball coach at Lindenwood College. "I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity and I'm excited about the challenge that's ahead of me. Hopefully I can take some of the positives from the other coaches I've worked with."

Ribble is the son of Larry Ribble, a top high school coach in Nebraska. The longtime coach at Millard South High in Omaha, Larry Ribble has coached seven state title teams.

Ribble took a position as an assistant coach under Mike Trader at Hastings (Neb.) College. He has been there for two years. "Within the first two weeks at Hastings, I realized how much I missed basketball and how much I enjoyed coaching," Ribble said. "I was fortunate enough to work with Mike Trader, who's an excellent coach. I've learned a lot about coaching in the last couple of years. …
