After coaching five years in high school, Stiebing served as an assistant for seven years, under well-known coaches Tic Price and Tim Floyd before being named head coach at the University of New Orleans in 1997.
In four years there, he established a 57-58 record and was even selected Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year … just two weeks before being fired in 2001.
