PCC Restructures Women’s Basketball Program

Pasadena City College (PCC) Assistant Superintendent/Senior Vice-President of Academic and Student Affairs, Dr. Robert H. Bell, announced that the decision has been made to make changes to the coaching structure for the women’s basketball program for the 2015-2016 academic year. A head coach will be named in the near future to serve for the 2015-2016 academic year in place of Coach Joe Peron while the College evaluates its current coaching structure.

Dr. Bell advised that in or about February 2015, the College was made aware of possible violations of the South Coast Conference’s recruiting bylaws. Upon review and determination that at least one violation occurred, in May 2015, the Conference called upon the College to examine its coaching structure and to take affirmative steps to ensure strict compliance with Conference bylaws. In response, the College has determined to evaluate the women’s basketball coaching structure while under different leadership, to ensure that PCC students continue to reap the rewards and benefits of participating in organized team sports at the collegiate level. Dr. Bell explained, “PCC must not risk Conference sanctions for violation of Conference bylaws. That would penalize student athletes in the women’s basketball program, and potentially conference competition in all of the intercollegiate sports at the college. This would be heartbreaking and unfair to our students for whom athletic competition is an important part of their collegiate experience.”

Dr. Bell added, “This is the basis for the decision to reconsider the coaching

structure for the women’s basketball team. The decision was not disciplinary nor punitive, and during the coming year, Professor Peron will continue as a vital and important member of the faculty within our Kinesiology program.”
