Dwight Pool

Dwight Pool

Columbia Basin College, Community Colleges of Spokane
Class of 1989

Dwight Pool played high school sports at Walla Walla and continued his football success as an outstanding defensive back at Washington State University.

He began his coaching career at Highland and Pasco High Schools and then as head football coach at Columbia Basin College from 1962 to 1966. His five-year record at CBC was an incredible 40-3-2, with his teams winning four league titles, including an undefeated season in 1965.

In 1966, Dwight was hired to start the Spokane football program and serve as the first head coach at SCC/SFCC. Pool’s 1968 team went undefeated, won the WAACC title, and was ranked sixth in the nation. His success continued with two more NWAACC titles in 1973 and 1974.

Coach Pool retired from SFCC in 1975 with a record of 52-21-1. During his 13 seasons of coaching football at CBC and SFCC, he compiled a 92-24-3 record with seven conference championships. Dwight’s amazing record at the community college level ranks him as the most successful football coach in NWAACC history.

Pool has been inducted into the Washington High School Coaches Hall of Fame, the Inland Empire Hall of Fame, as well as the NWAACC and CCS Halls of Fame.
