03/30/2018 - BOYS BASKETBALL: Mercer Resigns As Northeast Coach


After eight seasons, David Mercer will be stepping down as boys basketball coach at Lincoln Northeast.

Mercer, who played on three state championship teams for the Rockets during their mid to late 1990s run, said he is stepping away to spend more time with family.

He will still remain a business teacher at the school.

Mercer had been part of the Northeast program as a coach for 14 years, serving as JV coach before heading up the program in 2010 when Steve Bartek switch to take over the Rocket girls coaching job.

While the Rockets finished 0-24 this past season with brand new personnel who had little or no varsity experience, Mercer had success in recent seasons.  In eight years under Mercer, Northeast won three straight district titles and made state tournament appearances between 2014 and 2016, reaching the state semifinals in 2015 with a 21-5 record.

Mercer is a third generation Northeast athlete and graduate.  His father, Rex Mercer, Jr., played basketball on the 1967 state championship team and was an assistant coach on the state title teams in the ’90s.  Rex Mercer, Sr. was a 1942 graduate and was a multi-sport athlete.  All three are members of Northeast’s Athletic Hall of Fame.
