New coaches join S&T lineup

Two new coaches have joined the Missouri S&T staff. Kyle Rutledge took over as the new assistant coach in track and field and Joey Goodson has been named the new assistant for the men’s basketball program.

Rutledge, a three-time All-America performer in the pole vault at Missouri Southern State University and most recently an assistant coach at Johnson County Community College, takes over as the assistant track coach for Bryan Schiding, who served for six seasons in the position before stepping down to become Missouri Southern’s assistant track and field coach.
Goodson, a former player and assistant coach at Saint Francis University in Pennsylvania, is filling the vacancy on the staff of new head coach Jim Glash, who was elevated from the assistant’s role after Dale Martin stepped down as the Miners’ head coach following the 2008-09 season.
During his playing career, Goodson served as a team captain for all four seasons and started in 62 of the 105 games he appeared in, making his mark as a top defensive player and playmaker. He finished with 73 career steals and 193 assists while averaging 4.5 points per game. He was third on the team in steals in his senior year despite missing a good portion of the season with an injury. In the 2004-05 campaign, Goodson was named as the Northeast Conference’s “Defensive Player of the Year.”
Goodson followed his playing career with a three-year stint as the assistant coach for the Red Flash.

MXene discovery could improve energy storage
