UCSB Women’s Basketball Hires Alex Delanian as Associate Head Coach

Alex Delanian, who spent the previous four seasons on staff at the University of Hawaii, has been named Associate Head Coach for the UC Santa Barbara women's basketball program, head coach Bonnie Henrickson announced.

"We're certainly excited to welcome Alex to our Gaucho family," said Henrickson. "He brings experience within the league as well as experience recruiting on the west coast, particularly in California. He worked with post players as a primary responsibility at Hawaii, and from a staff standpoint, that is a need that we wanted to fill."

Delanian  replaces Evan Unrau, who is getting married and relocating.

Delanian was promoted to Associate Head Coach for the 2016-17 campaign after serving the previous two seasons as an assistant coach for the Rainbow Wahine. In addition to working with post players, Delanian played an integral role in preparing scouting reports and breaking down film. He also served as Director of Basketball Operations during the 2013-14 season.

"I am beyond grateful to Coach Henrickson and the UC Santa Barbara administration for the opportunity to be a Gaucho," said Delanian. "I can't wait to get started and help this program continue down a path of success, both academically and athletically, to compete for championships and make the Santa Barbara community proud."

Prior to his time at Hawaii, Delanian spent five years at the University of Southern California. He graduated from USC in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in print journalism and earned a master's degree in communication management in 2010.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
