La Salle College Preparatory High School in Pasadena has named Brandon P. Lincoln as the school’s new athletic director, effective Aug. 1.
Lincoln currently serves as athletic director and head boys basketball coach at Providence High School in Los Angeles.
“I am honored and excited to join the community at La Salle College Preparatory,” Lincoln said in a prepared statement. “I’m looking forward to growing La Salle’s athletic program, while also remaining rooted in the school’s mission and founding values and principles.”
Lincoln earned his bachelor of science degree in political science and a master of science degree in educational leadership from the University of Oregon.
Lincoln’s appointment as La Salle’s athletic director comes after a thorough search, which included input and perspectives from staff, faculty and coaches. Prior to his work at Providence High School, Lincoln served as an assistant coach for Montana State’s men’s basketball team from 2014 to 2017.
Lincoln also served on the athletic staff at the University of Oregon and Miami University (Ohio). In addition to his professional staff career, Lincoln was a stand-out basketball athlete at the high school, collegiate and professional levels, playing for the University of Oregon and continuing his career with the ETB Wohnbau Baskets in Essen, Germany.
“In selecting Brandon to be our next athletic director, we’ll be adding a member to our leadership team with an extensive background in athletics, which includes his experience as a player, coach, and administrator,” said La Salle College Preparatory’s Principal Jamal Adams. “He will be a great addition to our school and administrative team because of his professionalism, poise, and innovative spirit.”
Serving as athletic director, Lincoln will be responsible for overseeing more than 100 coaches, 24 athletic teams and programs, and over 350 well-rounded student-athletes that excel both in and out of the classroom.
