Brett Muller completed his sixth season as Concordia's head golf coach in 2016-17.
Under Muller's direction, both golf programs have moved up the GPAC pecking order. Between the start of the 2013 seasons and the end of the 2015 seasons, the Bulldog men moved up from 10th to sixth while the women jumped from 11th to fifth. In addition, Muller has coached program record breakers on both sides in Amy Ahlers (2017 graduate) and Shawn Rodehorst (2015 graduate).
Ahlers served as the the program's top player for all four years. Her most significant accomplishments came as a senior when she won the GPAC individual title, was named the GPAC golfer of the year and advanced to the national championships. Ahlers concluded her career with 11 career tournament wins and 32 top-10 finishes. She broke school records for top 18-hole season and career averages.
This is Muller’s second appearance at Concordia University. He attended Concordia from 2004-06 and earned his bachelor’s degree in human performance. Muller also was an assistant coach for the women’s basketball program at Concordia from 2004-07. During that time, the Bulldogs advanced to the National Tournament three times and the NAIA Fab Four one time. In addition, Muller served as an assistant coach on the men's basketball coaching staff in 2012-13.
Muller oversaw the blossoming of all-conference golfer Shawn Rodehorst from 2011-15. Rodehorst broke a school record for lowest season average (75.15 in 2012-13) and became the first Bulldog to ever win the Blue River Invite. The sophomore moved up from 30th on the GPAC leaderboard after the fall season to top 10 at the campaign's conclusion. Rodehorst also graduated from the program with a record for career average. Ahlers has enjoyed similar success on the women's side. At the close of 2016, she owned six career tournament titles and final GPAC finishes of fourth, second and third.
Muller got his collegiate career started at Morningside College from 2001-04. He played basketball for two years and was a member of the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll during his time at Morningside.
Muller was the assistant golf coach at Milford High School in 2010. Milford advanced to the 2010 Class B Nebraska State Golf Tournament. Muller has also worked at the Milford Golf Course.
Brett and his wife Heather reside in Milford with their daughter, Braelynn.
