Sean Shook, who started the men’s basketball program at Quest University in Squamish, B.C., has joined Simon Fraser University as the lead assistant coach on the Clan men’s basketball team.

Shook spent eight years at Quest University, where he built the men’s basketball program into a perennial power in the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association.

He led the Quest Kermodes to a 48-15 record over the last three seasons. In 2015-16, the Kermodes won a school record—19 PACWEST games—and finished the season ranked fifth in the national poll.

Shook was also Quest’s athletic director.

“We are extremely excited to add Sean to our coaching staff,” says SFU head basketball coach, Steve Hanson.

“Sean's experience and familiarity with the Great Northwest Athletic Conference is a huge asset but, more importantly, Sean is a quality individual and coach. His values align with how we want to re-build the men's basketball program."

Shook has been in the coaching profession for more than 20 years, coaching at Meridian High School (Bellingham WA), Ferndale High School (Ferndale, WA), Blaine High School (Blaine, WA) and with the American Basketball Association's Bellingham Slam.
