San Diego City College men’s head coach Mitch Charlens was named coach of the year in the Pacific Coast Conference.
This is an award bestowed upon the coach for his efforts in the Pacific Coast play offs. All the coaches in the league in which we play, both the PCC and in the overall competition do the voting.
The voting was cast by all the competing schools who have a Basketball team in San Diego County, it is the first time this award had been given to coach Charlens and justly so.
The City Knights would finish their season (15-1) in the PCC and (26-4) overall.
This is the second time Coach Charlens has won the PCC title the first was in the 2004-05 season.
On Thursday 12 March Coach Charlens was awarded the coach of the year for Southern California as well.
The Coach is in his fifth year at City and has created a winning team in his short tenure here, the work ethic he has instilled in his players is very demanding and every practice is treated as though it were a game.
Charlens took over a losing basketball team and immediately set about turning City into a winning team, he would lead the Knights to victory claiming the PCC championship in the 2004-05 season and follow up with another championship this year.
