Cuesta College women’s basketball coach Ron Barba is looking to add another member to his coaching staff before next season.

Barba said during a phone interview Wednesday he’s spent most of the summer recruiting an entirely new roster and would like to bring in an assistant coach to fill a paid position.

Barba is entering his seventh year as the Cougars’ head coach following an underwhelming 2015-16 campaign. An injury plagued Cuesta team finished the season 9-19 overall and 4-8 in the Western State Conference.

With the school year beginning Aug. 15, Barba said he would like to hire an assistant coach before the team plays eight exhibition games during September.

Cuesta qualified for the California Community College Athletics Association playoffs three consecutive seasons before last year’s uneven performance. Barba said he has been pleased with how the new-look roster is coming together and believes Cuesta “can be really competitive” again in 2017.

Those interested in applying for the job can contact Barba at 805-714-0008 or email ronald_barba@cuesta.edu.
