Trenkle hires aide for GCCC men's basketball
By BRETT MARSHALL
When Brady Trenkle was introduced Wednesday as the new men's basketball coach at Garden City Community College, there were many other Broncbuster coaches and school supporters in the Hall of Fame room at the Dennis Perryman Athletic Complex.
In the background, and with little fanfare, there stood Cole Dewey, who was announced shortly thereafter as the second assistant coach for Trenkle as he takes over the GCCC men's program after Rand Chappell resigned in mid-May to move to Eastern Illinois University as an assistant coach.
Dewey, a 2011 graduate of Campbell University in Buies Creek, N.C., has served as a graduate asssitant for the men's basketball program at Campbell since July of 2011. In that season, the school finished 17-15, 11-7 in the Big South while coaching former GCCC standout Eric Griffin.
He was in charge of organizing the Campbell Basketball School, including all office duties and off-court coaching. Dewey earned a bachelor's degree in business administration with a sports management minor.
"I'm looking forward to being part of this program," Dewey said.
in a brief interview.
Trenkle said he is still in the search process for his first assistant.
