William Middlebrooks

Head Coach

William Middlebrooks enters his ninth season as the Head Men's Basketball Coach at Cathedral. On March 27, 2012, Cathedral High School announced Coach Middlebrooks would guide the program into the future. Middlebrooks has transformed the Phantoms into a Top 20 ranked program in the State of California. In each of the last 3 seasons, the Phantoms have been ranked in the State’s Top 20, rising as high as #9 in the State. Considering prior to Middlebrooks’ arrival the program went 13-40 the 2 preceding seasons and had never been ranked in the State in the school’s 86-year history, this is a phenomenal accomplishment.
