JACOB ROBIDOU, 2018-19 VARSITY BASKETBALL COACH
Former college football player for Carroll college in Helena, Montana and basketball player for Northwest college in Powell, Wyoming. The first basketball team he coached went 25-2, placed 2nd in the state tournament. He continued to coach for two more seasons and he went 5-15. In 2018, he went 14-9 and advanced into the divisional tournament.

Coach Randy Swoverland – 2 years

Coach  Rick Weaver – 2 years

 

Four different coaches for varsity basketball within the last 7 years.

The team has never really had a committed coach for more than two years other than a teacher who coached for 7 years just prior to Rehmann.

Rick Weaver recently resigned from the varsity position with Jacob Robidou set to take his place.  Robidou and his family traveled from Montana to Michigan, so they could be closer to family.

Robidou has coached since he was 22-years-old in Manhattan, Montana for the Tiger boys varsity team and says, “he loved it.”

When he saw the job open up in his new home, he couldn’t help but apply.

“There’s a possibility that he’ll be here for long time and create a good program and have a good team this coming season,” returning forward, junior Adam Twining, said.

Athletic director Meghan Kunzelman, says she feels good about this coach.

She was very impressed by his successful experience coaching and playing in Montana. She thinks that he will “bring a stable and successful basketball program to the school from elementary and up.”

Miguel Medina and Chris Jenkins, senior guards on the team in 2018, are expecting the 2019 season to look good.

They both think boys varsity will be good because the players have a lot of talent coming up. Medina cautioned that if the coach is strict then maybe not. Jenkins agreed.

Medina thinks once the team respects the coach and the coach respects the team, then the team is looking at a good 2019 season.  

“At the beginning of last year’s season, it was rough because the coach was so uptight, but then we had a team meeting toward the end of the season and told coach,” Medina said. “We ended the season with three straight wins.”
