Following an extensive search, Northwest College has named Dawud Abdur-Rahkman as the interim men’s basketball coach for the 2018-19 season.

Before being hired by NWC, AbdurRahkman had been serving as the head coach of the men’s basket - ball team at Lehigh Carbon Community College in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania. The Cougars posted a 7-21 record last season.

“We are excited to welcome Dawud to our college family,” NWC president Stefani Hicswa said Wednesday. “He brings great experience and will complement our current coaching staff well. In addition to his excellent background in coaching and student development, he is very friendly and approachable. He will be great for our program.”

Abdur-Rahkman has a bachelor’s degree in physical education from Howard University and an associate’s in sports management from Northampton Community College. Abdur-Rahkman will officially begin on Monday.
