Eastern Washington University men’s basketball coach Jim Hayford has announced the addition of Alex Pribble as an interim assistant coach for the Eagles.
Pribble, a graduate and former player at Cal, spent the past two seasons as an assistant at San Francisco State where he was the top assistant for the Gators. Prior to that, he was the boys’ basketball coach at Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley, Calif., for three years.
“I am honored that Alex will join our staff,” Hayford said. “He has a bright future in the coaching profession and our players will benefit from his mentoring.”
While at Tamalpais, the Red Tail Hawks won 30 games and earned a trip to the North Coast Section Playoffs during the 2009-10 season. It was the school’s first playoff berth in eight years. Pribble was the head coach at Tamalpais from 2008 until 2011.
He spent the 2007-08 season as a graduate assistant coach for Cal.
Pribble received his bachelor’s degree in 2007 and his master’s in 2008 from Cali. He walked-on during his freshman season and played in 76 games for the Bears during his four-year intercollegiate career.
He was twice named to the Pac-10 All-Academic Team and was a two-time recipient of the Cal Hustle Award.
