Head Coach: Royce Bryan

Royce Bryan enters his fifth season as the Bears Head Men's Basketball Coach. In his first four years he has compiled a 47-55 record. In those four years the Bears won the Midwest Christian College Conference in 2010-11, had the second most wins in school history in 2012-13 (18) and have had multiple NCCAA Division II and ACCA All-Americans come through the program.

Prior to Barclay College, Bryan started his coaching career as the head freshman coach at Scott County High School in Scott City, KS in 2003-04. The following two years he worked as the graduate assistant for the Southwest Baptist University Men's Basketball program where he earned his masters degree in Educational Administration. In 2005-06 he helped lead the Bearcats to an MIAA regular season and tournament championship as well as a #1 seed in the NCAA Division II national tournament. In 2007-08 he became the head coach at Walnut Grove High School in Missouri and then from 2008-2010 he was the head coach at Greensburg High School in Kansas.

Bryan is a native to Haviland High School and graduated from there in 1999. He attended Neosho County Community College as a freshman where his team won the KJCAA East and came within one game of qualifying for the national tournament. The following year he played at South Plain College in Levelland, TX where he earned his associates degree before transferring to Bemidji State University in Bemidji, MN to finish his playing career. While there he earned NSIC honorable mention honors as a junior and first team honors as a senior. He was named Bemidji State University Outstanding Athlete of the Year in 2002-03 and was named to the Verizon Academic All-American Team in the same year. He completed his Bachelor of Science from BSU.

"My basketball and life philosophy centers on modeling and living out Jesus. I want to make a difference in the lives of people and in the players that come through the program. We use basketball as another way to glorify Him and train ourselves in a lifestyle of Christ likeness," said Bryan.

He is married to Shari for ten years come May and they have three children: Kami (6), Eli (5) and Jozi (2).
