New Buster Basketball Assistant is Former Dodge City Head Coach


Garden City, KS- Coach Rand Chappell did not have to look very far to find his new assistant coach for the men’s basketball program at Garden City Community College. As a matter of fact he looked to the closest school to GCCC. He has hired former Dodge City Community College head coach Brady Trenkle to assist with the Broncbuster basketball team. Trenkle comes to Garden after spending the last four years at the helm of the Conquistador program. During his four seasons at Dodge City, Trenkle coached his teams to a combined record of 72 wins and 52 losses. That included 20 win seasons in three of his four years and DCCC advanced to the quarterfinals of the Region VI Tournament twice in his four years. He coached six All-Jayhawk West players and seven All-Region VI selections at DCCC. Trenkle also saw multiple players go on to compete at the four year level including a high number of NCAA Division I signees. Prior to being named the head coach at Dodge City, Trenkle served as an assistant for four years in the Conquistador program for Brian Hoberecht. During his time with Hoberecht the Conqs advanced to the semifinals of the Region VI Tournament. Before his stint at Dodge, Trenkle served as an assistant at College of Eastern Utah and Seward County Community College for two years a piece. During his time at CEU, he was an assistant for current Seward County coach Bryan Zollinger. Trenkle played collegiate basketball at San Diego State University for his father. Trenkle comes from a basketball family. His father, Fred, is an NJCAA Hall of Fame Coach. He has served as the head coach at College of Southern Idaho and also at NCAA Division I school San Diego State University. His two brothers are also both head junior college coaches. Eddie is the head coach at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, CO and Swede is the coach at Hill College in Hillsboro, TX. “I am excited to be able to bring Brady on board,” said GCCC Head Coach Rand Chappell. “He brings a great basketball knowledge and also a great knowledge of the Jayhawk Conference. I think he can really help the program.” Trenkle starts his duties immediately for the Broncbuster program.
