While this is his first season with the Cougars, assistant coach Monte Chadwick is no stranger to the game of basketball. As a teenager, he was a standout guard at Stockton, California’s Edison High School, averaging 15 points a game. He received a full scholarship to New Mexico State University, but chose to stay in California.
During the 1984-85 season, as a freshman, he played with Scott Brooks (currently the head coach of the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder), under our very own, coach Myron Jordan; and helped lead the team to a 25-6 CCCAA State Championship record.

In the 1987-88 season, Chadwick embraced the opportunity to play for legendary Coach Dr. Dave Holmquist (still a fixture in the NAIA after over 30 years, Coach Holmquist has over 700 wins, and the distinctions of being the youngest collegiate coach to reach 500 & 600 wins) at Biola University, a private Christian school in sunny Southern California; making it to the NCAA National Semi’s with a record of 31-5. That year, young Chadwick was faced with the tough choice between the future of his career, and the future of his family unit; and no matter what great things may have been in store, he chose to leave school and take care of his family.
Never having lost his love of the game, or his sense of community, he now joins the team of coaches dedicated to cultivating the amazing talent that unifies the Cougar basketball family. When asked about his new endeavor, assistant coach Chadwick said that he is “thankful for and excited about the opportunity to work with the Cougars and [is] looking forward to a great season”.
