Cerro Coso Community College Basketball Head Coach, Chris Dugan, enters his second season at the helm of the program.
Coach Dugan comes to Cerro Coso most recently by way of College of Sequoias (COS), a member program of the Central Valley Conference and a perennial strength in the California Community College basketball scene. During his tenure at COS, Coach Dugan served as the lead assistant to Head Coach Rusty Smith and a team that finished third in the CVC last season making a strong post season run. Coach Dugan has worked in his current role since 2013 and has been charged with recruiting, planning and operations, and on the court coaching duties. Prior to his stint with COS, Coach Dugan worked with San Jose State Men’s Basketball as an Operations Coordinator assisting the coaching staff with player development, stat analysis, and film exchange.
His knowledge and prior experience at both the four-year and community college level will serve as an asset to the Coyote Athletic Department and he will become a valued mentor to the student-athletes on campus.
In his own words, Coach Dugan says, “I extremely excited about being named Head Basketball Coach at Cerro Coso Community College and lead these student athletes. I would like to thank the college for trusting in me to build a positive program for the community. I have built exceptional leadership skills and have a sincere, unbridled enthusiasm to help student-athletes be successful on and off the court.”
