Assistant coach George Porcha begins his second season on the Ole Miss women's basketball staff in 2017-18.

Porcha, who works primarily with the Ole Miss point guards, helped see the transition of senior Erika Sisk into the Rebels starting point guard during her senior campaign in 2016-17. Sisk, who had never played point guard as the collegiate level, averaged 8.1 points per game and 3.9 assists per game, increasing her assists per game by nearly two assists per game. Additionally her 3.9 assists per game ranked No. 6 in the SEC.

Sophomore reserve Alissa Alston also saw increased development under Porcha’s tutelage. Alston set a new career best with nine assists against ULM and averaged 2.8 assists per game while scoring 7.0 points per game. The Ole Miss point guards combined for 17 games of five or more assists and two games with double-figure assists.

Porcha also had a hand in the development of Madinah Muhammad and Shandricka Sessom, who lead the Rebels in scoring in 2016-17 with 13.0 and 12.7 points per game, respectively.

Porcha comes to Ole Miss from Woodbridge Senior High School where he was the head boy’s basketball coach. Porcha also has extensive ties to the AAU ranks where he has helped run the highly successful Boo Williams Summer League. Porcha most recently served as the associate head coach at West Virginia and has also spent time at Virginia Tech.

In his most recent stint in the collegiate ranks, Porcha spent five years on staff at West Virginia and played an integral role for the Mountaineers. During his time at West Virginia WVU made four consecutive appearances in the NCAA Tournament and recorded the best record in program history in 2009-10, finishing with a 29-6 mark. Porcha was instrumental in the day-to-day coaching of the team, including the post players. He helped Liz Repella and Takisha Granberry earn All-BIG EAST second team honors and assisted in Sarah Miles obtaining the BIG EAST Most Improved Player Award.

 Prior to his stint at Virginia Tech, Porcha, a Spring Valley, N.Y., native, spent 2004-07 at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Va., where he served as head varsity girl’s basketball coach. While at T.C. Williams, Porcha led the team in 2006 to a second-place finish in the Northern Region and to the Virginia State Elite Eight tournament.

He guided the squad to an undefeated Patriot District Championship and was named the District Coach of the Year for his efforts. Porcha's 2007 squad also captured the Patriot District title. Several of his players at T.C. Williams later played at the collegiate level. Academically, Porcha served as a special education teacher for two years and was the assistant athletic director in 2007.

Prior to T.C. Williams, he was the head varsity girls coach at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Va., for five years leading his team to the regional playoffs each year while compiling a 62-43 record. He was named the 2001 National District Coach of the Year and coached seven players who went on to college playing careers. Porcha's teams compiled an average GPA of 3.2 during his tenure. He also served as head junior varsity girl’s coach (1997-1999), head freshman girl’s coach (1995-1997), varsity track assistant coach (1995-1999) and varsity football coach (1995-1999).

Porcha also has a wealth of AAU coaching experience where he has coached 20 players who received Division I scholarships. He worked in the Boo Williams Summer League in Hampton, Va., for the past three years. His 2005 and 2006 teams were the Boo Williams NIKE Elite tournament champions with his 2007 team finishing second. Porcha also guided his team to the End of the Trails NIKE Elite tournament championship in 2005 and a runner-up finish in 2006. His team captured the Virginia State Championship in 2006 and 2007.

Additionally, he attended the Villa 7 Consortium in May, 2010, in Beaverton, Ore., which comprised the most-talented group of men's and women's basketball assistant coaches from college basketball's most storied programs and focused on the next generation of rising head coaches. Participants were exposed to a variety of topics designed to help familiarize coaches with the on-and-off the court challenges they may not be familiar with.

Additionally, Porcha has also served as a camp counselor at several universities including Virginia Commonwealth (2005), Richmond (2003-05), UNC Greensboro (2002) and Virginia (2000-01), as well as being the Camp Facilitator at the T.C. Williams Camp for four summers.

Porcha earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from New Haven. While at New Haven, he played safety on the football team. He garnered his master’s degree in education from George Mason in 2006. 

Porcha and his wife Robyn have three sons George Jr., Jalen, and Quincy.
