Former Nebraska men's golf coach Bill Spangler has been named co-head coach for the Lincoln East boys program.

He'll share coaching duties with Joe Schlegelmilch, who was recently a co-head golf coach at Lincoln Southeast.

Spangler began his coaching career as an assistant for the Nebraska women's program in the mid-1990s. He took over as Husker men's coach in 2001 and held the job until 2018.

"It is with great pride that I join the Spartan family and be able to contribute to its already fabulous reputation," Spangler said in a prepared statement.

Schlegelmilch, a Lincoln East graduate, has served as a counselor at East. He won a Class A boys golf state championship at Southeast in 2009 as a co-coach.

Spangler and Schlegelmilch take over for Chad Geiger, who guided the Spartan boys golf team for seven years and a 2017 Class A state championship.
