In a surprise move, The Master’s College has hired its former successful women’s basketball head coach Ken Sugarman as its new men’s head coach.

The surprise part of the move is Sugarman left in 2008 after he helped make the women’s program one of the country’s best. He took a sales job in Washington.

“The Master’s College has always held a special place in my heart, and the fact that I get to return to a place where I had a fantastic experience working as the women’s basketball coach for 13 years really excites me,” Sugarman said in a press release. “I’m really excited because the thought of coaching (collegiate) men’s basketball always seemed really inviting ... now that the opportunity has been extended, I’m thrilled to accept. I’m looking forward to getting to know the guys, paint a vision on where we want to go and who we want to be. I can’t wait to get to know the players collectively and on an individual basis and to get a running start for next season.”

Sugarman, who is a TMC graduate, had a 266-152 overall record and was 88-52 in Golden State Athletic Conference play.

His teams made seven NAIA National Tournament appearances and claimed two GSAC Tournament championship titles.

Sugarman led the Lady Mustangs to an NAIA Top 25 ranking over 10 straight years and coached the Lady Mustangs to an NAIA Tournament Final Four appearance in 2006.  

He takes over for Chuck Martin, who led the program for eight seasons and compiled a 131-118 overall record and a 62-84 conference record before he was dismissed in March.
