Rashim Lettsome has returned to McHenry County College as the Head Men's Basketball Coach. Lettsome, a Waukegan High School graduate, was part of a regional and sectional championship team in high school before coming to play for the Scots from 2004-06. The point guard earned all-conference honors in 2006 and still holds MCC assists records.

Lettsome went on to attend and play at Dominican University in River Forest. As a 2008 graduate of Dominican, he earned two letters with the Stars and finished as at the top of the Stars' era assist list. His 80% free throw percentage ranks third in program Dominican MBB history.


Lettsome continued his career with the Lake County Stars and the Kenosha Ballers of the Independent Basketball Association. He earned a team captain position for the Ballers' championship runs in 2016 and 2017. He then returned to Dominican University in 2017 where he served as the Men's Basketball Assistant Coach through 2021.

Coach Rashim Lettsome believes in playing a winning brand of basketball, teaching life skills through the game, and helping guide young men to lead successful lives academically, athletically and professionally. He recruits competitive, motivated and passionate student-athletes who are focused on doing well in the classroom and on the court to achieve their goals.

"We are thrilled to welcome Rashim back to our Scot family," adds MCC Director of Athletics Karen Wiley. "He has already shown great enthusiasm and work ethic in developing our MBB program to new levels. We anticipate great things ahead."
