Spicka named assistant AD, Brill next head boys basketball coach

Brian Spicka will step aside as Head Boys Basketball coach to become the Assistant Activities Director for Pius X High School, replacing Jake Moore. 

The new head boys basketball coach will be Adam Brill ’04, former Pius X player and current assistant coach. 

Spicka has been a basketball coach at Pius X for 23 years, serving as head coach for the last 6 years, and has also previously coached boys soccer and football. He has taught for 23 years in the Lincoln Catholic schools system, the last 21 teaching Social Studies at Pius X and currently serves as department chair. His teams compiled a record of 115-34, made 5 state tournaments, and won the 2019 Class B State Championship during his time as head coach. 

“I have had the great honor to coach basketball at Pius X the past 23 years,” Spicka said. “It has been a privilege to work with the alumni, administration, coaches, parents, and most importantly the amazing group of young men in our program over that time. I take with me great memories, lifelong friendships, and pride in success that we had over that time. I look forward to working more closely with all of our athletic and activities programs at Pius X as Assistant Activities Director. I am excited to see the continued success of the basketball program under Coach Adam Brill and his staff.” 

Spicka replaces long-time teacher, coach and assistant activities director Jake Moore, who is moving to Omaha Marian this fall. 

Brill was previously head coach at Fairbury and Norris high schools, and re-joined the Pius X coaching staff four years ago. He was a member of the 2004 state championship team. 

“I’ve been lucky to have Brian as a coach and a mentor,” Brill said. “More importantly, he’s one of my closest friends. He’s had a tremendous influence on my life. Under his leadership the basketball program continued to excel on and off the court. I look forward to the challenge of continuing that growth working with our administration, student athletes, parents and alumni.”
