Scott Garson Wins 2015 Red Auerbach Coach Of The Year Award

Posted by admin On April - 7 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Coach Scott Garson of The College of Idaho was named the 2015 Red Auerbach Coach of the Year during a ceremony at the Final 4 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Red Auerbach Award is given annually to the nation’s top Jewish college coach, as voted on by the members of the Jewish Coaches Association (JCA).

Garson was one of five  finalists for the award. In his 2nd season at The College of Idaho, Garson guided the Yotes to a 30-6 record and an undefeated season at home. The team won the Cascade Collegiate Conference (CCC) Regular Season and Tournament titles and reached the Quarterfinals of the Division II NAIA National Tournament.

“I am honored to be this year’s recipient of the Red Auerbach Award,” Garson said.  “There are so many wonderful coaches that had great years.  It is special for our tremendous season to be recognized nationally.”

Other finalists for the award included Southern Methodist head coach Larry Brown; Wyoming head coach Larry Shyatt; Phoenix CC head coach Matt Gordon; and Northwest Florida State CC head coach Steve DeMeo.

“Coaching awards are the result of great players and great staff members,” Garson said.  “I am blessed to have the best coaching staff in the country and a group of players that represent everything that is good about college athletics.”

The JCA named its college coach of the year award after Red Auerbach, the coaching legend who won 938 games (a record at his retirement) and nine National Basketball Association (NBA) championships as a coach. As general manager and team president of the Celtics, he won an additional seven NBA titles, for a grand total of 16 in a span of 29 years, making him one of the most successful team officials ever in the history of professional sports.

Red Auerbach Coach of the Year Recipients: 2015 – Scott Garson, College of Idaho; 2014 – Josh Schertz, Lincoln Memorial; 2013 – Keith Dambrot, Akron; 2012 – Andy Yosinoff, Emmanuel; 2011 – Josh Pastner, Memphis; 2010 – Bruce Pearl, Tennessee; 2009 – Brad Greenberg, Radford.
