Jansen Bolsters Men’s Basketball Staff with Addition of Kolton Rap

[Ontario, OR] - TVCC head men's basketball coach, James Jansen announced the addition of Kolton Rap as an assistant coach to join the Chukar program.

Rap spent the past four seasons coaching high school basketball in Colorado and Wyoming and previously spent time in Las Vegas training college, international professionals, and NBA players.

Coach Rap, a graduate of the University of Wyoming, also served as a student assistant for the men's basketball program during his time at Wyoming.

"Coach Rap is going to be big for us with his experience developing players, Head Coach James Jansen says, "He's done it at the Division 1 level in his time at Wyoming as well as with pros while at Impact in Vegas. I'm excited to get him on board and be another resource for our guys to get better. It's not very often in the NWAC that you get multiple coaches on-campus full-time developing not just players but young men as well and it gives us a massive selling point when young men are looking for a school to help take their game to the next level."

Rap grew up in Laramie, Wyoming, and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Wyoming and a Master of Science degree in Sports Administration from the University of Northern Colorado.

He joins first-year Head Coach James Jansen as the program is currently in its first recruiting season under new leadership.
