Derek Sullivan begins his eighth season as the Head Coach of the Panthers, his 16th year as a member of the coaching staff, and his 19th involved in the City College program. In addition to his coaching duties, he also teaches full-time in the Kinesiology, Health, and Athletics Division.

In his seven years as the head coach, Coach Sullivan has had 90 players transfer to four-year universities. Having a commitment to prepare for the next level, both on the field and off, is a huge part of becoming a “Sac City Guy”.

While at City, Coach Sullivan has amassed an overall record of 191-108 (.639 winning %). The Panthers have qualified for the postseason in six of his seven years, won three Super Regionals two Sectionals and finished 3rd in California in 2019 and as the State Runner-Up in 2018!

“Sully” returned to the coach for the Panthers in 2005 after playing for ABCA Hall of Fame coach, Ed Blankmeyer, at St. John’s University in 2003 and 2004.

On the show, Derek fills us in on what a "sac city guy" is and we spend a bulk of our time on going through a year of individual player development. This episode is so good with Derek Sullivan!
