Head Coach: Ron Newton

Email: ron.newton@edcc.edu

Coach Ron "Newt" Newton has coached for many years in the Puget Sound area, with stops at Seattle University, Pierce College, and Nathan Hale High School. He has also worked alongside current Edmonds CC men's head coach Kyle Gray for three seasons.

During that time, the men's team won two North Region titles and appeared in two NWAC Championship Games. The Edmonds CC men won the North Region in 2014-15 and finished second at the NWAC tournament. The men were also ranked No. 1 in the league.

Newton took over the helm of the Edmonds CC women's basketball three games into the 2013-14 season. Up to a tough challenge, he kept the Tritons on the road to improvement which resulted in a pair of wins in their final two games of the year. 

Newton agreed to remain on as head coach following that challenging year and he and his staff are in the process of rebuilding Edmonds CC into a competitive squad on the court, and one that also excels in the classroom and community.
