COACH - CHANCE DIXON
Blue Mountain Community College head rodeo coach Chance Dixon is a four time national finals saddle bronc qualifier, one time national circuit champion, and five time Columbia River circuit champion.  Chance's 30 year history in rodeo will bring a lot to the BMCC rodeo program. 

"Being afforded the opportunity to coach is a big thrill for me," said Dixon, "but it wouldn't be possible without the support of my wife Dulcie and my boss Sheriff John Trumbo." Dixon is a detective for the Umatilla County Sheriff's Department.

Dixon started his athletic career in "Little Britches" rodeo. In high school he was a three time state champion, four time state/national high school finalist, and finished third in the national high school finals in saddle bronc. At BMCC he competed in team roping, bull rding and saddle bron gevents. His college rodeo career  rewarded him with two regional championships, and three qualifying slots at the college national finals where he finished in the top five twice.

While coaching wrestling at Riverside and Umatilla high schools, Dixon tried to instill the fundamentals, and a willingness to compete at a high level, while encouraging his althetes to succeed not only in sports, but in life.
