Josef ChirhartHead Men’s Basketball Coach for Centralia College
Josef was recently named Head Men’s Basketball Coach for Centralia College, and is taking on the challenge of running the inaugural 3-on-3 Streetball games for Centralia-Chehalis Chamber of Commerce.
Prior to joining the basketball program at the College, Josef was the Head Boys’ Basketball Coach for Tenino High School from 2013-2022 and also became the Athletic Director in 2017. During his tenure with Tenino, he started the Tenino Youth Basketball League, which launched with about 50 members and grew to more than 160 kids prior to the Covid shutdown.
Josef was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, where he graduated from high school as the 2002 Alaska State Male Athlete of the Year. He moved to Lacey, WA where he played basketball, and attended and graduated from St. Martins College in 2007. In addition to his role at Tenino High School, he spent five years coaching at Yelm High School as an Assistant Basketball & Football Coach and also spent 1 year at Olympia High School as Girl’s Varsity Assistant Coach.
Now that he is working for Centralia College Josef looks forward to becoming more involved locally, which the 3-on-3 Streetball Festival offers. “This is such a great opportunity to get to know and work within the community,” commented Josef. “Historically I’ve worked exclusively with youth and now I get to expand my passion to young adults and older players.”
