Coach Rob Robinson
During the 2019-2020 basketball season the Netflix original series “Last Chance U” documented the East LA Community College basketball program. It was quite the undertaking as this was LCU’s first season of documenting a basketball program. Coach Rob was a prominent figure throughout the basketball season, and the series, as the ELAC Huskies finished the season with a 29-1 record. The series at one point, during March of 2021, was the most popular watched show on Netflix and has garnered rave reviews by major media outlets.
