Ed Pepple 
Coach

As the longest tenured basketball coach in Washington, Ed Pepple has accomplished quite a few things. With 44 seasons as a head coach under his belt, Pepple is still teaching the game he loves.
 
Pepple began his coaching career at Fife in 1958 and over the next five years, Pepple turned the program around, taking fourth in state during the 1962 season. He coached junior varsity at Meadowdale High School for three years before returning to his familiar helm as varsity coach for one year at Mark Morris.
 
Pepple arrived at Mercer Island High School in 1968 and immediately had an impact, winning the KingCo championship (one of 21 in his career). In his 36 years at Mercer Island, Pepple led his teams to four state championships, as well as runner-up four times.
 
With the most wins as an active head coach (872-262), it’s no surprise that Pepple has a 77.1 winning percentage and 26 state appearances. He has been named Washington State Coach of the Year seven times and named Coach of the Year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches in 1997. In 2002, he was inducted into the Puget Sound Sports Hall of Fame and Museum.
 
He retired after 30 years of teaching (English and Physical Education) in 1988. In the off-season, he enjoys playing tennis and golf.
