Cedar Rapids Washington High School announces the hiring of Justin Decker as the Head

Men's Basketball Coach pending School Board approval.  Justin replaces Adam Sanchez who resigned earlier this spring.  Decker becomes the ninth men's basketball at Washington in its 58-year history. 

Justin grew up in Independence, Iowa and attended Cornell College lettering three years in basketball.  Twice he was named to the Iowa Conference All-Academic team and was captain of the Cornell basketball team in 2004.  Following graduation, Justin earned his Masters degree at Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida.  Justin returned to Iowa to become the head basketball coach at Riceville High School.  He then went to Cornell College as the assistant basketball coach.  During his three years at Cornell, he helped them win an Iowa Conference Tournament Championship and turn around their basketball fortunes. 

Justin's last five years have been at Coe College where he has been the Associate Head Coach.  The Kohawks have a pair of 2nd place conference finishes and one conference championship during that time.  In his eight years at the college level, Justin has assisted teams to a 123-87 record while turning around programs that were 4-21 and 9-17 in the year prior to his coming.
