(WINDSOR, ON) – The St Clair College Athletic Department has chosen not to renew men’s basketball head coach Matt Devin for next season. It will now begin its search immediately to fill the post.
“We are very appreciative of Matt’s efforts with the men’s basketball program at St Clair,” said St Clair Vice President Ron Seguin. “Matt was very hardworking and meticulous in his preparation for practices and games while advocating for his players. He also helped us during the transition into the new SportsPlex.”
Devin spent a total of 10 seasons with the men’s basketball program, beginning as an Assistant Coach in 2006. He’s been at the helm for the past six years. As a head coach, Devin’s best finish was in 2013-14 when St Clair placed 4th in the West and hosted a cross-over play-off game.
During that season the Saints won at perennial power Humber College for the first time since 1983.
Devin was 26-48 in league play over six seasons and, including exhibition play, was a combined 35-84.
Under his guidance, David Korenic was the OCAA’s leading scorer and attained CCAA All-Canadian status in the 2009-10 season. The next year St Clair won the pre-season Seneca College Invitational knocking off the 3-time defending tournament champion Niagara College, in the final game.
The St Clair Athletic Department begins its search right away to fill the vacancy and interested applicants can contact the Saints by phone at (519) 972-2727 Ext. 4214 for more information. Resumes can be emailed and a posting will be run on the St Clair Athletics web site at in the coming days.
