Mel Stubblefield named new Bellevue College Women's Basketball Coach
March 25, 2014
Bellevue College Athletic Director Bill O' Connor has announced today that Mel Stubblefield has been named Head Coach for the women's basketball team.
Stubblefield takes over for Jeremy Eggers, who was the head coach for both Bellevue's men's and women's basketball teams this past season. Eggers will remain as head coach for the men's program.
"Jeremy did a remarkable job leading both teams to region titles and taking them both to the NWAACC Championships, with the women's team placing in the top eight. To be the head coach for both teams is a daunting task that we asked him to take on last season. I want to thank him for not only taking on the challenge, but succeeding as well," says O'Connor.
Stubblefield, who was an assistant for Eggers on the women's staff, was also an assistant for the girls' basketball team at Bellevue HS in 2011-12. He is also known in the NWAACC as a standout player at Yakima Valley College.
A Yakima native who graduated from Davis HS, Stubblefield was an All-Eastern Region point guard for the Yaks which set a team record at 31-2 in 1999.
