Robert Bishop will begin his third season as the College of Alameda men’s basketball head coach.  After serving 16 years as assistant coach, Coach Bishop worked faithfully beside retired head coach Myron Jordan and helped lead the Cougars to 12 playoff seasons.


“I am very humbled in respects to having the opportunity to both learn and work with Cougar’s men’s basketball team and  I look forward to this upcoming season,” said Coach Bishop.


Coach Bishop has held several basketball coaching positions within both the collegiate level and the high school level. He served as the boys head coach for Amos Alonzo Stagg High School, boys head coach for Franklin High School and boy’s head coach for Samuel Hancock School, all located in Stockton, California and the boys head coach for St. Mary’s High School in Berkeley, California. At Franklin High School, he was able to turn their struggling team around in two seasons and at the end of his tenure with Franklin High School he held a record of 22 wins and 18 losses. While at Samuel Hancock School, he ended his two seasons with 45 wins and eight losses and at St. Mary’s High School they held an astonishing record of 115 wins and 15 losses in five seasons.


Coach Bishop understands the game from both the stand point of a coach and a player. Bishop was a diligent basketball player for Emerson Vocational High School in Buffalo, New York. During his course as a basketball player, he was voted two times as All Western New York Selection Guard. He averaged 13 points and four assists per game. Bishop also played for Bryant and Stratton College in Buffalo, New York. During his college experience he was once again voted twice as the All Conference Selection. At that time, he helped lead his team to the Conference Championship. Later, Bishop and his team were able to qualify for the Final Four Tournament. Together, they won 25 games and lost four.
