Former Wisconsin Badger, Tim Jarmusz, starts his fourth year on the St. Thomas coaching staff in 2018-19. Tim has come from a rich basketball background. An Oshkosh, Wis., native, Tim was named Wisconsin Gatorade Player of the Year in 2007, Associated Press first-team all-state, first-team all-conference, and led Oshkosh West to its second-straight large-class state title as a senior.
After high school, Jarmusz moved on to the University of Wisconsin where he played for Coach Bo Ryan and the Badgers. Jarmusz appeared in 122 games with 48 starts. A three-time Academic All-Big Ten (2009, 2010 and 2011), Jarmusz became a vital part of UW's rotation for his high basketball IQ, hustle and versatility. Jarmusz was also one of the most sure-handed players in the Big Ten, leading the conference averaging a turnover every 67.1 minutes of action as a senior.
After college, Jarmusz played professionally in Germany for one season where his team won a German League Championship. Tim moved to the Minneapolis area and is excited to join the Tommie coaching staff. “I couldn’t be happier having the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful program with a rich tradition of basketball and academics.”
Tauer said, “We are ecstatic that Tim has joined our staff at UST. His experience playing at an elite level combined with his intellect and passion for the game make him a tremendous addition to our program. Tim is bright, motivated, personable, and a great teammate – all qualities that will serve him well in coaching.”
