College of Idaho Promotes Colby Blaine to Associate Head Coach

College of Idaho head men’s basketball coach Scott Garson has announced that his top assistant, Colby Blaine, has been promoted to associate head coach prior to the 2016-17 season.

“Colby is involved in every aspect of our basketball program, from coaching to recruiting to fundraising and beyond,” Garson said. “I truly feel like we have a partnership in running this program and we are all very fortunate to have him back with us for another season.”

Blaine, a Boise native, joined the C of I program prior to the 2014-15 season after five successful years as an assistant coach at the College of Southern Idaho. During his first year with the Yotes, he helped the squad win their second-straight Cascade Conference regular-season and postseason title – advancing to the quarterfinals of the NAIA Division II National Championships.

“He is such an outstanding coach and mentor to our players, Garson said. “There is not a decision that I make without consulting with him. Colby has been as much a part of the success we have had during my tenure at the College of Idaho as anyone.”
