A decorated basketball coach with more than three decades of experience is returning to the valley to take on a new position.

Arizona Christian Athletic Director Jeff Rutter recently announced the appointment of two-time NAIA National Coach of the Year Rusty Rogers as the new head coach of Women’s Basketball. Rogers last coached for Concordia University Chicago, a NCAA Division III school.

He also spent a significant amount of time at Western Oregon University, and he’s in the school’s hall of fame with 120 wins. Rogers also worked at Wilmington University, and he departed as the all-time winningest coach with 87 victories scattered across just four years.

Rogers, a current resident of Scottsdale and an attendee of Christ Lutheran Church, previously coached girls basketball at Sandra Day O’Connor High School for the 2013-14 season.

Congratulations, Rusty Rogers!

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
