TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - Zach Settembre is now the fourth head coach in Tallahassee Community College history since the school reinstated men's basketball in 1990. Settembre took over as interim head coach earlier this year after Mark White stepped down, and on Tuesday, it's official as the now interim was formally introduced as the head Eagle.

"Our goal really is to graduate our guys first and foremost. Tallahassee is a special place. It's the best college town in America," he said. "There's no reason we cannot win at an exceptionally high level here. It just comes down to us making sure we have the right people in our prgram. We work tirelessly everyday in recruiting. We've driven 8000 miles since the season ended. Gosh knows how many hours we spent in the car, but we're going to do it because we want to make sure we have the right people."

Settembre added he's still pinching himself that he is now a collegiate head coach.
