Kyle Getter

Title: Assistant Coach

Kyle Getter returned to Liberty in April 2015 as an assistant coach under head men's basketball coach Ritchie McKay.

Getter is no stranger to Liberty basketball after serving one season as an assistant coach on McKay's staff in 2008-09.  During that season, the Flames tied a NCAA Division 1 school record with 23 wins and made an appearance in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament (CIT). Before coming back to Liberty, Getter spent four seasons on Mike Jones' staff at Radford.  Getter assisted the Highlanders to a two-year record of 44-25, the highest win total over any two-year period in program history. Radford also earned back to back 20 win seasons for the first time since 1998-99 and made consecutive appearances in the College Basketball Invitational (CBI).

Previous to coaching at Radford, Getter played an integral part in VCU's success in the 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons, which included a remarkable run in 2011.  The Rams went from the First Four to the Final Four with wins over USC, Georgetown, Purdue, Florida State, and Kansas. While on Shaka Smart's staff, the Rams posted 55 wins over two seasons, the highest total over any two-year span in program history.

Prior to his first stint at Liberty, Getter was an assistant coach at Walsh University in Ohio, where he helped the Cavaliers post a 26-5 record, win the AMC Championship, and make a Sweet 16 appearance in the NAIA Division II National Tournament.  The Cavaliers were ranked in the top 5 in the country for the majority of the 2007-2008 season.

Getter has also worked at Marshall University, Wright State University, and at the University of Dayton.  While at Dayton, the Flyers finished the season with a 24-6 record after winning the 2003 A-10 Tournament Championship and finished the season ranked #16 in the AP Poll.

A native of Miamisburg, Ohio, Getter received his undergraduate degree in physical education from Hanover College (IN). While at Hanover, he served as both a student assistant and assistant men's basketball coach from 1999-2002. He helped the team earn a three-year record of 60-18 and two HCAC championships. Before attending Hanover, Getter played two seasons at Centre College in Kentucky.

Getter and his wife, Michelle, have a son, William, and a daughter, Madelyn.
