Cinco Boone is in his second year as an assistant with the Lumberjack basketball program.
Boone came to SFA following a three-year stint at Jacksonville College. He spent the last year of that tenure as the program's head coach, leading the Jaguars to a 16-16 record and a berth in the Region XIV Tournament. Along the way, Jacksonville picked up two wins against nationally ranked teams. The year before, with Boone in the assistant's seat, the Jaguars went 21-10 and were ranked nationally for four weeks.
Boone spent the 2006-07 season on staff at Hardin-Simmons. He helped the Cowboys to a 16-12 record and a second-place finish in the American Southwest Conference. Hardin-Simmons earned five All-ASC honors that season, including Zach Pickleman's ASC West Division Player of the Year award.
Before joining the collegiate ranks, Boone spent three seasons coaching at his alma mater, Portales High School in Portales, N.M. He served as the varsity assistant and head junior varsity coach. The Portales varsity squad won the district title in each of his last two seasons, reaching the state semifinals in 2006 and finishing as the state runner-up in 2005.
Boone graduated with honors from Eastern New Mexico in 2005, earning a bachelor's degree in education. He earned a masters in sports recreation and management from Hardin-Simmons in 2008.
