Steve Schuler is entering his second season as the head women's basketball coach at Albertus Magnus College during the 2012-13 academic year after spending the 2010-11 season as an assistant coach for the Falcons.
In his first year as the Falcons' head coach in 2011-12, Schuler led his team to a 14-12 overall record as it was the program's most successful season in the last eight years. The team's 14 regular-season wins marked the most for the program since the 2003-04 season when they finished the year 16-11.
The Falcons also opened up the 2011-12 season with a 4-0 record; the best start in program history.
Prior to Albertus Magnus, Schuler coached nine years at the high school level, including four years as head coach at Lauralton Hall, where he won over 70 games during that span. In 2008, he was named the Connecticut Post Coach of the Year.
Schuler played at Saint Joseph’s College in Maine and graduated with a B.S in Marketing and Management. He started all fours years, while twice being named All-American as well as a National Catholic Basketball Tournament All-American. He totaled over 1,400 points and was the only player in school history to never lose a home game. In 2002, Schuler was inducted into the Saint Joseph’s College Hall of Fame.
Following college he played professionally in the United States Basketball League (USBL) for the Connecticut Skyhawks.
Schuler graduated from Joseph A. Foran High School in Milford, Conn., while scoring over 1,300 points while being named an All-State selection.
