Assistant Coach/Wide Receivers
After a successful four-year playing career at Missouri University of Science and Technology, Brett Fischer enters his third season as an assistant football coach at Washington University in St. Louis. Fischer will serve as the wide receivers coach for the Bears.
Fischer caught 155 passes for 1,976 yards and 13 touchdowns for the Miners. The 1,976 yards were the most by any Miner receiver in school history at the time, and currently is second in school history. His 155 catches are the third-most in Missouri S&T history.
As a senior, he earned honorable mention All-MIAA honors after a 72-catch, 1,040-yard season with seven touchdown catches. The 72 receptions tied the school’s single-season record and Fischer became the first Miner receiver to finish with more than 1,000 yards in receptions in a year.
Fischer graduated from Missouri S&T in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in engineering management, economics and finance. He signed with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2005, and went to preseason camp with the Detroit Lions in 2006.
