Coach Charles is no stranger to DSCC Eagles basketball having served as the women's basketball head coach for the past three years and assistant coach to the men's program for five years. He also began his college basketball career as a point guard for the DSCC Eagles in 2000.
Coach Charles has served as trainer and coach to athletes of all ages since the mid-90s including Caleb Brown, the former No. 1 ranked female player in the country and a top 50 player in ESPN's 100, who now plays professionally in Brazil. Under his direction, players have received National Basketball Association (NBA) tryouts as well as community college and university basketball scholarship opportunities. His goal as head coach to both the men's and women's basketball teams at DSCC is to help student-athletes experience success in the classroom and on the court.
