DeCuire takes assistant job at University of California

Former Mercer Island High School basketball standout Travis DeCuire became an assistant coach for the University of California men’s basketball team on April 17. DeCuire, who graduated from MIHS in 1989, was an assistant coach at Old Dominion University during the past five years. The former Islander joins coach Mike Montgomery’s staff.

DeCuire also held the head coaching position at Green River Community College, where he took the program to the NWAACC championship in just two years. The team posted its first 20-win season in over 20 years under DeCuire. He was also named as the NWAACC Coach of the Year. After playing point guard for the Islanders, DeCuire went on to play basketball at the University of Montana from 1991-94, earning All-Big Sky Conference honors during his junior and senior seasons. DeCuire set the team’s single season assist record with 199. He also coached at Sammamish High School.
