Tucker Takes over at Maranatha

New Maranatha boys basketball HC Tim Tucker


In coaching circles when things happen, they happen quickly. In the last 24 hours Pasadena Coach Tim Tucker stepped down as the Bulldogs coach and has been named the new HC at Maranatha. Tim Godley, Maranatha’s head coach for the last five years, resigned Monday paving the way for Tucker’s hiring Tuesday.

“It all happened very quickly,” said a source at Maranatha.

Pasadena has won nine consecutive Pacific League titles (15 overall) under Tucker and two CIF titles including the last one in 2012. This year the Bulldogs finished 21-6 overall and advanced to the second round of the CIF Division 1AA Playoffs before being knocked out by Loyola.
