Lincoln Southeast announced Monday the promotion of Joey Werning to head boys basketball coach.
Werning was a varsity assistant coach for the Knights under Jonah Bradley, who stepped down earlier this summer to take a post at NCAA Division II Winona State.
Werning also coached at Kearney Catholic and began his coaching career running the boys freshman team at Lincoln Pius X, his alma mater. He teaches business and computer at Southeast.
A 2011 Pius X graduate, Werning played college ball at Concordia before transferring to Nebraska where he served as a student manager for Tim Miles.
