Meet Coach Marty Eggleston

Coach Marty Eggleston

Men's Varsity Basketball

Coach Marty Eggleston joined the LCCC staff as Head Men’s Basketball Coach in December of 2012.  He brings with him a wealth of coaching and playing knowledge and experience, having played and taught at every level from Pee Wee to the Pros. “I've been asked on different occasions, what is my style as a coach? I am a player developer and I get a tremendous amount of joy from watching players of all types improve their game and get to the next level of play.”

Eggleston played center for the Kutztown University (Kutztown, PA) men’s basketball team from 1985-89. He set 14 Kutztown career, season and game records, many of which still stand today. His career records include rebounds (864), blocked shots (254), field goals made (599) and field goal percentage (56.9%, 599-1053). A native of Coatesville, PA, Eggleston led the Golden Bear basketball team to one of its most successful seasons in school history in 1987-88. That season, KU won the PSAC Eastern Division title, advanced to the championship game of the conference playoffs and earned a berth in the NCAA East Regional playoffs.

He was named the KU Male Athlete of the Year, Eastern College Athletic Conference South Player of the Year, first-team All-PSAC and a third-team All-American. Eggleston set single-season records that year in points (598), rebounds (321), blocked shots (108), field goals (254), field goals attempted (405) and field goal percentage (62.7%, 254-405). Of those records, only the field goals attempted and percentage records have since been surpassed.

Eggleston played nine seasons of professional basketball in Europe, in addition to a season with the Quad City Thunder and Cedar Rapids Silver Bullets of the Continental Basketball Association.

Coach Eggleston has coached at every level form high school to professionally, including running major clinics, camps, and individually training players.  He began his coaching career as a camp counselor and coach at the 76ers Basketball Camp in 1984, where he mentored and coached over 300 student-athletes.  In 1990, he formed the Rim Rockers International Basketball Academy that held camps and clinics for boys and girls, and is still the President of this organization today.  From 2000-2003, he coached at the Bishop Shanahan High School in Downingtown, PA.  Eggleston was head coach of the Delaware Destroyers (Eastern Basketball Alliance) from 2005-2007.  From 2009 to 2011, Eggleston was head coach and regional director of the American Basketball Academy. 

Also during this time, Coach Eggleston founded Activating Responsible Men (A.R.M.), an organization with the goal of empowering and educating men on the importance of their influence in the lives of their children.  He has been in the field of education for over 20 years and is a certified Parent Educator and certified trainer of Trainers National Fatherhood Initiative.  He is currently employed with the Lorain County Community Action Agency as the Director of Planning and Operations.

Coach Eggleston is looking forward to moving the men’s basketball program forward.  He views LCCC as providing an opportunity for players who would like to further their athletic career and move forward with their dreams. “I enjoy the chance to assist these young men to academically educate themselves, build character, strengthen their minds and seriously raise their basketball IQ. We want to make this fun and exciting for these young men and the college as a whole.”
