Coach Tucker is the Head varsity boys basketball coach at Luther North. He has been the head coach for four years. He is also an elementary Physical Education teacher in Schiller Park for K-5th grade and an adapted Physical Education teacher. He received his bachelor’s degree from Concordia University in Chicago where he played four years of college basketball. Currently, he is working on his master’s degree from Northern Illinois University for Adapted Physical Education. He also participates our summer camp.

What inspires me to be a teacher and basketball coach is the meaningful relationships I develop with the kids over the years. I also like being a positive influence in their lives and helping shape them into great young men. Coaching basketball is my passion and it never feels like a job to me. I chose education as a career because it’s the most rewarding. I love being able to be a role model and being able to influence children in a positive way. I have always lived an active life style and have felt that being a physical education teacher fit me well.
