Coaching Staff

Head Coach/Athletic Director

John Rennie2013-2014 was not only the inaugural season for women’s basketball at BPCC, but also Coach John Rennie’s first season as a head women’s basketball coach at the intercollegiate level. After finishing 19-13 for the 2014-2015 season, Coach Rennie and the BPCC women’s basketball players have high hopes for a successful third year of the program during the 2015-2016 season.

Coach Rennie has lead the Lady Cavaliers to a 28-31 record through two seasons as a college coach after coaching most of the previous 20 years as an AAU coach in the Shreveport-Bossier area. His former players include many who advanced to play collegiately as well as two at the WNBA level. As a player, Coach Rennie helped lead his high school team to three state championships while earning All-State, All-District and All-City honors.

Coach Rennie is also the founder of HoopKids Basketball – an enrichment program that teaches basic basketball skills to preschoolers while further developing their gross motor skills. Operating this program has allowed him the privilege to watch hundreds of preschool children grow and develop basic coordination skills while learning about the great game of basketball.

Thoughts for the 2015-2016 season:
“We had a strong second season losing a close game in the semifinals of the conference tournament. With our third season, we hope to keep improving and finish even higher in a very strong conference. The group of ladies we have for this season bring a lot of enthusiasm and hard work. We're looking forward to another strong season for lady Cavalier basketball in 2015-2016.”

Coach Rennie resides in Benton, LA with his beautiful wife, Melissa and his step-children, Caden (12) and Claire (9) Cox.
