La Roche College Athletic Director Jim Tinkey has announced Harry Jenkins as the interim head coach of the Redhawks Basketball program. Coach Jenkins has been the top assistant under Coach Scott Lang for the past three seasons. Jenkins, a retired teacher, was the head basketball coach at Fox Chapel High School for 25 years as well as a varsity assistant coach for 10 years prior. A former basketball player and graduate of Edinboro University, Jenkins also spent three years as an assistant coach for the women's basketball team at Carnegie Mellon University.
La Roche Athletic Director Jim Tinkey states, "We have all the confidence in the world that Coach Jenkins and the staff will fill the void in leadership that this team suffered with the sudden death of Coach Lang. Coach Jenkins has been at the forefront and the spokesman on behalf of our entire community to the men's basketball program since last week's tragic events. The entire La Roche College community has the confidence that Coach Jenkins and the men's basketball coaching staff will be able to carry the torch from this point forward."
