KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) -- The Kansas City Pioneers have hired 61-year old Joseph Bricker, formerly of the Indiana Invaders, as an Assistant Coach and Player Development Coordinator. Bricker has reportedly signed a four year deal at $750,000 per. Bricker replaces the recently retired Brian Davis who spent the last 9 seasons in the same role for Kansas City. Davis, 61, decided to step away from the daily grind of being an OBWL assistant coach to focus on family and working part-time as a private player performance consultant and trainer.

Bricker comes to KC after two seasons with the Invaders. Prior to that he spent nearly 30 years as a coach at various levels: 8 years as a Division II head coach, 15 years as a Division I assistant (primarily at his alma mater Colorado) and 7 years as an associate head coach in Liga ACB, the top basketball league in Spain. Bricker cemented his reputation as an offensive guru in Spain and brought some innovative, euro-style pick and roll and spread offense principles with him when he joined the Invaders' staff in 2024.

"Joe has a wealth of experience both as a game coach and as a teacher of the game" said Pioneers GM Ben Johnson. "His grasp of the fundamantals of shooting, ball-handling, and defensive footwork will benefit all of our players, not just in the backcourt. We feel like he is a great fit with our veteran coaching staff."

With the coaching staff in place the Pioneers will now turn their attention to the upcoming rookie draft. Kansas City does not have a first round pick this year, having dealt it (#28) to Honolulu in the Richard Hardee / Mack Lavoie trade. Instead, Johnson and the coaching staff will try to turn up potential prospects with their two 2nd round picks, numbers 37 and 56 overall.
