UMass-Boston Names Zander Tasch Assistant Coach news sponsored by Dr. Dish

Zander Tasch has been named as an assistant men’s basketball coach at UMass Boston.  Tasch becomes the first assistant under newly appointed head coach Jason Harris.  This will be the second time that Tasch has worked with coach Harris, as the two were members of the Long Island University’s historic run to an East Coast Conference regular season title and a 23-6 record in 2009-10.

Prior to his arrival at the harbor campus, Tasch served as an assistant coach at Garden City Community College in Garden City, Kansas.  In his one season with the squad, he led GCCC to a 17-13 finish, as well as a pair of wins over top-5 ranked teams, including fifth ranked Butler Community College.

While on the coaching staff, Tasch was responsible for assisting in all facets of the day-to-day operations, which included grade/class checks, academic advising, recruitment of future players, and game/practice planning.  He would also coach two All-Jayhawk West players and the Region 6 Defensive Player of the Year.

In the summer of 2014, Tasch also worked with the Hoop Group Elite, which is regarded as one of the top basketball camps in the country.  While with the group, Tasch was responsible for the recruitment of some of the top players in the country.  No stranger to some of the elite basketball camps, Tasch has also worked the LeBron James Kings Academy, the Jim Calhoun (UConn) Basketball Camp, and the Boston Celtics Youth Camp.

Tasch graduated from the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC in 2006 with his bachelor’s in Mass Media Communications.  He earned his master’s degree in Educational Policy and Administration in 2012 from Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, South Dakota.
