Fraser Valley Looking for a New Coach

Our thanks to hard-working Sports information director Mike Tucker from University College of Fraser Valley for this release hot off the presses:

UCFV to seek new coach for men’s basketball

It wasn’t quite the slam-dunk UCFV was hoping for. This past year, the UCFV Cascades men’s basketball team took on their first year of Canada West league play under an experimental leadership model. The structure paired Vancouver-based head coach and team administrator Tom Antil with assistant coach Pat Lee, who served as primary on-court leader. Following an inaugural 6-17 CIS season, this unusual arrangement has been deemed not strong enough to continue to shepherd the Cascades through the highly competitive landscape of their new league. As a result, UCFV will be hiring a new head coach for the coming season; this coach will then put the leadership structure in place for the men’s basketball team. “We really need coaches who can be active on and off the court, on campus, and in our local communities,” said Tim Segger, Vice President Administration at UCFV. “We’re now actively seeking a head coach who can engage completely and really take the team to the next level.” Segger emphasized that for the next season all commitments that have been made to student-athletes will be honoured.
