Providence Pilots men’s basketball team head coach Tim Friesen has decided to step away from coaching at the collegiate level.
Friesen did a great job turning the program around over two seasons with the Pilots.
In the 2016-17 campaign, Providence recorded 9 wins and 20 losses, finishing third in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference, fourth in the National Christian College Athletic Association North Region and 10th at the Association of Christian College Athletics national tournament. Friesen also coached the MCAC’s Most Valuable Player, two ACCA Second Team All-Americans and two ACCA Second Team All-Region members.
This past season the Pilots further changed course, winding up with 17 wins and 15 losses. They finished third in MCAC, third in the NCCAA North Region and eighth at the ACCA National Tournament. Friesen coached three NCCAA All-Region Team members, one NCCAA All-American, two ACCA All-Americans and three Northern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference All-Conference players. Friesen was also named NCCAA North Region Coach of the Year for 2017-18.
“It has been an honour to be able to serve as head coach of the Providence Pilots men’s basketball team for the last two years,” said Friesen. “I have thoroughly enjoyed the relationships that have developed over the past two years with the players, the other Pilots coaches and opposing coaches. I will miss the competition, the time in the gym and mostly watching the relationships develop. But I am looking forward to having more time to spend with my family and watching—and coaching—my own children as they pursue their athletic and musical interests.”
