Coach John Rennie has the honor of serving as the head coach for Women’s Basketball for the 2013-2014 season. This is truly an honor to be the head coach for the first season of women’s basketball at Bossier Parish Community College.
Coach Rennie has been coaching basketball for the past 20 years serving as an AAU coach for the majority of that time. He has had numerous players advance to play at the collegiate level including two that have played in the WNBA. During his career as a basketball player, Coach Rennie won three state championships while playing high school basketball and earned All-District, All-State and All-City honors.
Coach Rennie has been serving in private business for the past 15 years which includes a program that allows him to teach basic basketball skills to preschoolers while developing their gross motor skills. This time working with children at an early age is a blessing for him as he is allowed to truly see them develop and grow.
Coach Rennie’s thoughts for the 2013-2014 season. “I am blessed with the opportunity to become a college coach for the first time while launching the first women's basketball team at Bossier Parish Community College. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to help build the Lady Cavalier basketball program and be a part of making history at BPCC. What a great way to start out as a college basketball coach!"
