Doug 2021-22

Doug Haynes: Head Coach

Hall of Fame alumnus Doug Haynes was hired in 2018 to lead the CCRI women’s basketball program.

Taking over just prior to the start of the '18-'19 season, Haynes molded a team of young players – many of whom he did not recruit – and led them a 12-14 record in addition to an appearance in the Northeast District Championship.

Prior to taking over at CCRI, Haynes enjoyed an 18-year career as the head coach at St. Mary’s Academy at Bay View. Haynes earned Rhode Island Division I Coach of the Year honors seven times at Bay View in addition to being named the 2014 National High School Federation Coach of the Year. He also won two state championships, five state runner-up titles and seven division championships.

At CCRI, Haynes starred as a two-sport athlete from 1987 through 1989, exceling in basketball and baseball. He was the men’s basketball team MVP in 1988 and 1989 and was a two-time All-New England selection and an NJCAA All-American as a sophomore. He graduated as the fourth member of the school’s 1,000-point club and, at the time, the third leading scorer in program history with 1,043 points.

On the baseball field, Haynes earned two All-New England selections as an outfielder and posted a .403 batting average to lead the Knights to a third-place finish in the 1988 NJCAA World Series.

CCRI inducted Haynes into the Hall of Fame in 1995 and named him the 2015 Outstanding Alumni Award recipient. He was also inducted into the West Warwick Athletic Hall of Fame in 2004 and named the Female Sports Coach of the Year by Words Unlimited in 2014.

Haynes also attended the University of Rhode Island from 1984 through 87 before earning his associate degree at CCRI in 1989. He is employed in juvenile corrections at the Rhode Island Training School for Youth in Cranston and lives in North Kingstown.
