PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Carnegie Mellon University assistant men's basketball coach Andrew Garcia has been appointed the first head men's basketball coach in Chatham University history. Garcia served as the Tartans' assistant coach for three years.
In June, Chatham announced it will now sponsor men's sports as part of the university's three-phrase transformation to a co-educational institution. The Cougars will begin intercollegiate competition during the 2015-2016 academic year.
"I am thrilled at the opportunity to become the first head coach at Chatham University," Garcia said. "As a Pittsburgh native, staying in the city is, and always will be, very important to me. I am looking forward to the challenge of building the men's basketball program at Chatham from the ground up."
