Second Season at Duquesne
17th Season on Coach Dambrot’s Staff
Terry Weigand (WHY-gand), whose ties to head coach Keith Dambrot date to his playing days at Tiffin University, brings over 25 years of collegiate coaching experience to the Duquesne bench.
The Barberton, Ohio native most recently spent 13 seasons as an assistant on Dambrot’s staff at Akron, where his primary focus was in the area of player development.
Weigand’s association with Dambrot began as a player at Tiffin in 1985 and 1986 - Dambrot’s two seasons as a head coach - and continued as Dambrot’s assistant at Ashland in 1990 and 1991.
Prior to the assistant coaching role, he lettered for two seasons at Ashland (1988 & 1989), and helped the Eagles to a NCAA Division II tournament appearance in 1988.
In his two seasons as an assistant at Ashland, the program amassed a record of 48-13 (.787) and made appearances in the NCAA tournament Sweet 16 in 1990 and Elite 8 in 1991.
Weigand began a four-year stint as head coach at Ashland in 1991-92. That year, Weigand’s squad averaged 100.6 ppg. on the way to a Great Lakes Valley Conference championship.
In 1995, he moved on to the University ofMount Union in Alliance, Ohio, where he assisted in rebuilding the program. The Raiders posted their first winning season in 18 years during his first year, and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Division III tournament in 1996-97. In his nine years at the school, the team posted just one sub-.500 season.
Weigand rejoined Dambrot on the Akron staff in 2004-05, where he helped the Zips to 10 postseason appearances in 13 years.
Weigand earned a bachelor’s degree in hotel and restaurant management from Ashland in 1989 and a master’s degree in sports science from Ashland in 1997. As a player at Tiffin, he recorded a program-best 489 career assists (7.9 apg.). He recorded a then-school record 291 assists (9.1 apg) during the 1985-86 season.
A 1984 graduate of Barberton High School, Weigand helped BHS to a runner-up finish in the 1982 state playoffs. He was inducted into the Barberton High School Hall of Fame in 1997. Weigand and his wife, Jodi, have a daughter, Brittne, and two sons, Trent and Trevor.
