Grays Harbor College has named Matthew Vargas as Head Men’s Basketball Coach. Vargas spent last season as the associate head coach at GHC.
In his seven years of junior college coaching, Vargas has entered the post season three times, including three regional championship games (2010, 2014, and 2015). The 2010 trip turned into an NJCAA National Title run while he was an assistant at Pima College. That 2010 team had several of his former high school players which he coach at Hammond High School in Louisiana. In six years at Tohona O’odham Community College, a program he presented, developed, and started, he placed 17 student-athletes on to the 4 year level.
Athletic Director, Tom Sutera said “We are excited about Coach Vargas guiding our men’s basketball program, he has the uncanny ability to build relationships and we look for him to do fantastic things with the program.”
