Chad Allan announced as new Grays Harbor Women's Basketball Coach
Chad Allan has been named as the new head coach for the Women's Basketball team at Grays Harbor College. This will not be coach Allan's first stint at GHC, as Allan had previously been a men's assistant coach under former head coach Gary Arthur. Allan's first stint at GHC was a four year span (98-02). Chad was lucky enough to be a part of the last, truly great, Choker squads, which reached the NWAACC Championship Game.
Since his Choker days, Allan has gone on to rebuild two local high school programs. Immediately after GHC, Chad Allan was named the new head coach for the Montesano High School Boys program. Allan spent 7 years (2002-2009) at Montesano High School before accepting a teaching position in the Hoquiam School District. Naturally, it made sense to transfer his coaching responsibilities to his new school district in Hoquiam. Allan became the Head Girl's basketball coach at Hoquiam High School in 2009, and served until 2013. In Allan's final year as the Head Coach in Hoquiam, the HHS girls had their most successful season in at least a decade.
"Chad seeks to provide stability in the position," said GHC athletic director Tyler Gaston. "It is a position which he hopes to occupy for years to come. I was very impressed with his demeanor, his knowledge of the game, and his history of building successful teams through dilligence and committment to the game and the student-athletes he serves. I think Chad will do a great job here at GHC, I am very excited to have him on board."
Coach Allan's first order of business is to build a roster and game schedule for next season. If you should need to contact Chad Allan, his new GHC email is firstname.lastname@example.org
