Head Women's Basketball Coach: Marcus Mitchell

Marcus Mitchell2016-17 will be Marcus Mitchell’s first as the head women’s basketball coach at Barclay College. Mitchell has been serving as the assistant coach for the Bears the last three years.

He takes over a team that finished in the middle of the pack in the Midwest Christian College Conference regular season standings and played some of its best basketball down the stretch last season, but also one that is losing their two most productive players due to graduation. Mitchell is well aware of the situation, and has hit the ground running in terms of recruiting and building the roster for 2016-17.

"I am grateful for the opportunity to be the next head coach for the women’s basketball team, remarked Mitchell. "Since coming to Haviland in 2007, I have been blessed to be coached and to coach alongside Godly men who have played a vital role in the person I have become today and my vision for the program is to continue to build on what Ryan Kendall and Brad Lingafelter have established since 2002. Our basketball program can be used as another way to honor Christ with the talents he has given us."

Not only has Mitchell been coaching for the Bears the last three years, he also played for the Bears from 2007-2011 and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Bible from BC in 2011. He helped lead the Bears to an MCCC conference championship as a senior with his sharp shooting from deep and his tenacious off-ball defense. Mitchell also has coaching experience as the assistant coach at Pratt High School (Pratt, Kans.) from 2011-12 and as the assistant junior high coach at Kiowa County (Greensburg, Kans.) 2012-2013.

He has been married to his wife Cherish for five years and they have two children; Myles (5) and Mya (2).
