Mike Nugent

Director of Officials

Mike is a pillar of the officiating community in Southern California. He has been a Junior College official since 1992 and has officiated over 30 Junior College playoff games. He has been a High School official since 1980 and currently is on the CIF Board of Directors for officials and is the Co-Instructional Committee Chairman. He also has 25 years experience as a coach at the high school level.

We are fortunate to have Mike leading our team of officials which are comprised only of local referees with High School and/or Junior College playoff experience. The result is that we have only the best of the best officials refereeing our games at the U.S. Basketball University.

As outstanding an official as Mike is recognized to be, he is an even better person as evidenced by his continued work for the past 17 years with students at the William S. Hurt Union High School District. He lives locally with his wife of 35 years.

His passion for the game of basketball is tough to beat and he continues to enjoy assisting the youth of the SCV learn and enjoy the game.
