Zimmerman moves up to head coach for LBCC men’s hoops

Linn-Benton Community College has hired Todd Zimmermann as its next men’s basketball head coach, Director of Athletics Mark Majeski announced last week.

Zimmermann will begin his new role immediately.

Zimmermann, a full-time teacher at West Albany High School, spent eight seasons as head coach of the Bulldogs boys basketball program from 2007-15. In 2016 he joined the Roadrunners’ staff under head coach Everett Hartman as associate head coach through 2019.

“Todd not only has a background and history of coaching success, but he has rebuilt programs into championship contenders,” Majeski said. “His passion and knowledge of the game will breathe new life into our program, and his deep connections to the Albany and surrounding communities will be a strong asset moving forward.”

 Prior to West Albany, Zimmermann taught and coached at Pendleton High School from 1998 – 2007.

The Roadrunners finished 2-14 in the Northwest Athletic Conference this past season with a roster of 10 freshmen and three sophomores, 4-19 overall.
