Former Lexington coach headed to Hastings College

Chip Bahe

Former Lexington head basketball coach, Chip Bahe will join Hastings College as an assistant coach under new men's coach Bill Gavers. Since 2002, he has served as Head Coach for Boys Basketball at Millard North High School where his teams went 138-106 and earned four bids to the Nebraska State Basketball Tournament. Among the players he has mentored is the 2013 Gatorade Player of the Year in Nebraska, Josiah Gustafson. His overall coaching record is 231-187 with seven trips to the state tournament, including a finish as the 1995 state runner up while coaching at Lexington.

Not only has Bahe coached basketball, he has served as Head Coach for the Mustangs' Boys Track team. In addition to coaching at Millard North and Lexington, he has coached at Lincoln Northeast High School and Omaha South High School. At an early age, Bahe was immersed in coaching and sports. His father, Al, was a legendary coach and athletic director at Fremont (Neb.) High School for many years while his brother Ritch played football for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the 1970s. After an outstanding high school career at Fremont, Bahe was a walk-on for the Huskers and ultimately earned letters as a split end in 1987-1989.
