For the last five years, Chazz has been coaching the Men’s Basketball Team and the 2021 season has also taken on the dual role of Athletic Director. Excited to be able to continue his passion of helping young men and women on and off the basketball court, he’s excited to bring spirit and community of Athletics to the Gateway community. To Chazz, “Gateway” means access or entry to a new place and as a coach this is what he wants to offer his student- athletes. Coach McCarter is a strong believer in new opportunities and second chances and knows that the passion and comradeship of connecting through recreational and competitive sports can bring anyone together.
