Brian Kimble enters his fifth season as an assistant coach with the College of the Canyons men’s basketball program, having joined the program during the 2014-15 season.
Prior to arriving at COC, Kimble served as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Hart High, working under head coach Tom Kelley. While there he helped coach the program to the 2013-14 Foothill League Title.

After finishing his high school career Kimble attended College of the Canyons where he played under COC head coach Howard Fisher during the 2008-09 and 2009-10 campaigns. As a Cougar, Kimble earned All-WSC First Team honors in both seasons.
Kimble went on to play at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, where he helped the men’s basketball program achieve several program firsts.
Kimble was part of the school’s first Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) tournament championship team. He also helped the Falcons earn a berth into the NCAA Division III men’s basketball tournament for the first time in school history, qualifying in back-to-back seasons.
