Head Coach
1st Season
Alma Mater :

Head Coach Jim Weeks was named head coach of the Tiger program in March 2012. Prior to Doane, he was the head basketball coach at Beatrice High School for 24 years.

In his first year with the Tigers, he guided them to 21 wins which tied the school single-season record.  Doane opened the year with nine straight victories, setting a school mark.  At the end of the year, Doane had four players named All-GPAC and Nick Reed was named a NAIA Honorable Mention All-American.

While coaching in Beatrice, he was named the Lincoln Journal Star and Nebraska Coaches Association Coach-of-the-Year in 1998.  Huskerland Preps honored Weeks with the coaching honor in 1998, 2005 and 2008.  In 2012, the Nebraska Coaches Association honored Coach Weeks with the Ed Johnson Award. 

He took over the Beatrice head coaching duties in 1989 and turned around what had been an unsuccessful program.  Weeks led Beatrice to 15 State Tournament appearances, 13 Final Fours’, three State Championships and three State Runner-Up finishes. In his final 18 years at Beatrice, his teams were rated in the Top 5 in the Class B final season rankings 17 of those 18 years.  During that time, Jim posted over 441 career wins.  Weeks also helped coach the Orangemen track teams to five State Championships.

Weeks teaches a leadership seminar during the summers for Doane College and conducts a Leadership Academy along with another very successful coach, Don Meyer, winner of the 2009 ESPY award. 

He is a Doane graduate and was a member of the Tiger track and field team, serving as a co-captain in his senior year.  Jim and his wife, Kim, have five children, Jackson, Jalen, Cooper, Callahan and Chloe.
