Guy Meyer- New Men's Head Basketball Coach

Glendale Community College Director of Athletics Dr. Peter Oliszczak has announced Guy Meyer as the new Head Coach of the Men’s Basketball team.

Meyer comes to GCC after spending time at both division one universities in his home state of New Mexico.  Meyer was most recently on Paul Weir’s staff at the University of New Mexico as Video Coordinator/Director of Scouting. Hired there in April, Meyer helped coordinate summer camps during his short time in Albuquerque. 

Weir originally hired Meyer at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM as his Director of Basketball Operations. Meyer oversaw academics, community service, player well-being, meals, travel, and opponent scouting and preparation. During Meyer’s only season in Las Cruces, the Aggies had an unforgettable season going 28-6, winning the WAC Championship and competing in the NCAA tournament. The Aggies season eventually came to an end losing to Baylor in their only NCAA game.

Prior to NMSU, Meyer spent five years in the ACCAC as Assistant Coach/Associate Head Coach at Cochise College in Douglas, AZ.  Meyer assisted the legendary Jerry Carrillo while at Cochise, who holds the mark for the most wins in the history of the ACCAC. Over the 5 years Meyer spent with the Apaches, they compiled the most wins in the ACCAC with 115.

Meyer coached three NJCAA All-Americans and over 25 players went on to the collegiate 4-year level during his time with the Apaches.

Prior to Cochise College, Meyer taught as an elementary PE teacher in his home city of Santa Fe, NM. During those two years he assisted Mark Senteny at Captial High School.

Meyer graduated from Fort Lewis College in 2007 where he was a four-year letter winner for Bob Hofman. He received All-RMAC honors in his junior (05-06) and senior (06-07) seasons.

The Santa Fe product slowly moved up the depth chart during his time at Fort Lewis College before earning a starting role his junior year. Meyer went on to start in 57-of-58 contests his last two seasons in Durango, Colorado.

Meyer averaged 10.4 points and 6.5 boards while shooting a blistering .523 clip from the floor his senior year. His 203 rebounds that season led the team and 10th in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. As a junior, Meyer was fifth on the team in scoring with 7.2 points per game and was second on the team with 5.4 boards per game.

Meyer was also a standout prep player, leading Saint Michael’s High School to back-to-back Class 3A state championships his last two years there (2002-03).

Meyer earned his bachelor’s degree in communications at Fort Lewis College in 2007 and a masters in sports & health administration at New Mexico Highlands University in 2011.
