CBC names new menís basketball coach

By Sara Schilling, Tri-City Herald staff writer

Pasco Rolando Garcia has been named head coach of Columbia Basin College men’s basketball team.

He replaces Lane Schumacher, who announced his resignation this spring.

Garcia has been assistant coach of CBC’s women’s team for seven years, said Pasco college officials.

He was point guard on the men’s team in 1990, the last time the team won an NWAACC championship, CBC said. Garcia then went on to play at Northwest Nazarene College.

He now serves as CBC’s director of the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Hispanic-Serving Institutions Assisting Communities grant.

“I’m really excited, humbled, and grateful for the opportunity to coach in a program that I also played for. I am also eager to take on this challenge and to begin working with these young men in preparing them for the upcoming season in an extremely competitive region of the NWAACC. I have been extremely fortunate in being an assistant for CBC’s women’s program under Cheryl Holden. She has been a tremendous teacher, friend, and mentor. Replicating the success we shared in the women’s program will be the tough task I will try to incorporate into the men’s program,” he said in a statement.
