Matt Logie has been named the newest head coach of the Point Loma men’s basketball team, announced Athletic Director Ethan Hamilton on Thursday, Apr. 25. Logie will become the 15th coach in the history of the PLNU men’s basketball program.
“I am really excited to welcome Matt, Julia, Addy (9) and Luke (6) to Point Loma and know they will be a great fit into this amazing community,” said Hamilton. “I am thrilled to see him build on the momentum that continues to grow with our program. His track record speaks for itself, but I was even more impressed with his commitment to helping young men grow on and off the court.”
Logie joins Point Loma after spending the past eight seasons as the head coach at Whitworth. During his tenure, the Pirates won .847 percent of their games, the highest winning percentage in the history of the NCAA (min. five years). His teams earned a bid to the NCAA Tournament in seven of his eight seasons, and he guided Whitworth to five straight Northwest Conference Championships (2011-16), and to six postseason titles (2011-16 & 2017-18).
“I would like to thank President Brower and Athletic Director Ethan Hamilton for their trust in me and my vision for the future of Sea Lion basketball,” said coach Logie. “From the beginning of our conversations, Ethan shared such an exciting vision for the continued growth of Point Loma basketball, and for capitalizing on the unbelievable momentum of this year’s run to the National Championship game along with the foundation that coach Ryan Looney and long-time assistant coach Jordan Courneya have established on the Point.
