Coaching change made at Linn-Benton CC

Joe Schaumburg is no longer the head men’s basketball coach at NWAC Linn-Benton Community College (OR). He has been replaced by former head coach Everett Hartman.

According to a report by The Commuter, “Players and parents went to college officials, saying Schaumburg had created a toxic environment with his negative attitude and the persistent disrespect he showed players and others, not only during practices but also during games.”

LBCC Chief Information Officer Jennifer Boehmer said in a statement:

“Our athletics program listens to student and parent feedback and is committed to supporting and responding to our teams’ needs — athletically, academically, and personally. We chose our new interim coach, Everett Hartman, because of his deep commitment to our athletes’ success and the considerable skills and experience he brings to the role. We are confident he will do an excellent job leading our Roadrunners during this transition.”

Schaumburg went 15-28 in just over two seasons as the head coach at LBCC.

Hartman served as the Roadrunners head coach from 2016 through 2018, and was assistant coach in 2015-2016.
