Izzi Metz Named Men’s Basketball Coach At Wilkes

Wilkes University named Izzi Metz as their new head men’s basketball coach on Tuesday afternoon at a news conference on the second floor of the Marts Center.

Wilkes Vice President of Student Affairs Dr. Paul Adams announced the selection of Metz to pilot the Colonels following the conclusion of an extensive search process. Metz, a proven winner at Division I Boston College as their Director of Basketball Operations and Division III Hobart (, brings a wealth of coaching experience and high-octane style of play both on the offensive and defensive sides of the court.

Metz is the tenth coach in the program’s 68-year history and takes over for Jerry Rickrode who served as the head coach for the last 22 seasons.

Metz graduated from Hobart in 1998 with a degree in Economics.
