Wynn, Walton Step Up as Interim Men’s Basketball Coaches

Joe Denoyer - March 10, 2017 4:53 pm

Saints athletes who participate in men’s basketball at Seward County Community College may have lost their coaches but they still have a “go-to” person — three, in fact. As the college adjusts to changes in the men’s basketball program, three athletic department staff members have agreed to step in as interim coaches and team support.

“Toby Wynn will serve as interim men’s head coach and Carlo Walton will serve as assistant men’s coach,” said SCCC president, Dr. Ken Trzaska. “Sports information director and assistant athletic director, Mr. Roy Allen, will work alongside both interim coaches until permanent coaches are hired.”

Trzaska announced the appointment Friday after a morning meeting with all three men.

“It was positive and transformational for us to sit down over breakfast and talk about how we envision the athletic division moving forward,” Trzaska said. “We want transparency, we want to think openly about the possibilities, and more than anything else, we want the young men who have committed to this program to know they are supported.”

With former athletic director Galen McSpadden filling in during the transition period, Trzaska said, “we are going to feel the continuity that makes a difference.”

The two men’s basketball coaching positions will be posted within a week, and a reassessment of the athletic director role is ongoing.
