Joe Scheuers enters his fourth year with the Quakers men’s basketball team. He was promoted to associate head coach prior to the 2017-18 season.

In 2016-17, Scheuers helped head coach Jason Polykoff lead the Quakers to their best overall record in a decade. 

In 2015-16, Scheuers aided Earlham to its first Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) road victory, a 76-72 triumph at Franklin, since the 2012-13 season. The Quakers finished third in the conference in free throw percentage. In addition, Elijah Wilson-Thomas led the nation in free throw percentage.

Scheuers came to Earlham after spending two seasons at Illinois College (IC) and one year at Trine University; where he served as an assistant coach at both institutions. While at Illinois College, Scheuers was the recruiting coordinator and performed other responsibilities including scouting, film, skill development, and served as the strength & conditioning coach for multiple athletic teams. 

During his two years at IC he helped the program double their win total from a 6-17 record in 2011-12 (the year prior to Scheuers’ arrival) to a 13-10 record in 2013-14. During his short stint at IC, Scheuers helped produce three All-Conference nominations for the Blueboys.

During the 2011-12 season Scheuers worked for his alma mater. That season Trine finished third in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) for the first time in six years. Scheuers assisted with recruiting, film, player development, and game day operations. Two Trine athletes were named All-MIAA that season. Scheuers, a native of Crescent City, Illinois, earned his bachelor’s degree in exercise science from Trine in 2011. Scheuers then went on to earn a Master's degree in Christian Studies from Grand Canyon University in 2014. Before his coaching career, he was member of the men’s basketball teams at both Trine University and Greenville College. 

Scheuers and his wife, Candy, reside in Richmond with their daughter, Noel.
