    Ken Atkins has more than 20 years of experience coaching basketball from junior high school to the collegiate level. In 13 years as head coach of the Monarchs at King's College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, he took a struggling basketball program and turned it into a constant force in the Middle Atlantic Conference.

    At King's College, he notched the school's second-most career wins, the most wins in a season, the longest winning streak, and the best career winning percentage. He led the Monarchs to their first conference championship and to three NCAA Division III Tournaments and was twice named Middle Atlantic Conference-Northern Division Coach of the Year. Atkins was a member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches for 17 years.

    Atkins enjoys writing, reading, and gardening. He resides in Larksville, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Betsy.

    "I have spent many hours talking the game with Kenny Atkins. He has a great feel for and understanding of the tactical aspects of the game as well as a knack for presenting to coaches and players."
