Brymn named women’s coach at Westmoreland County Community College

Westmoreland County Community College announced Monday that James Brymn of Penn Township is the new women’s basketball head coach.

He replaces Gene Brisbane, who was not retained after the 2017-18 season. Brisbane coached for three seasons and compiled a 50-29 record, including a conference title and trip to the regional finals.

A WCCC official said the school does not comment on personnel moves.

“We are excited to have James take over the women’s basketball program here at Westmoreland,” Brian Rose, WCCC director of athletics and recreation, said in a release. “His experience and leadership will help grow our program and develop a strong team in the NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association).”

Brymn has been the assistant girls basketball coach at Penn-Trafford High School for the past 10 seasons.

He is a graduate of Duquesne University.

Brymn will begin recruiting for the team, which will open the season Nov. 5 at home against Penn State Dubois. He will be seeking to hire an assistant women’s basketball coach to help round out his recruiting efforts.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.

Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
