Wayne Wharton


Coach Wayne attended Taft High School in Woodland Hills, California and played basketball for three of his four years there. He received a scholarship to D’Youville University in New York City, but decided to stay in California and attend Vanguard University in Costa Mesa. Wayne played basketball for only two years due to health issues. He graduated with a degree in Kinesiology, coaching and teaching. Wayne’s first love was basketball and it continues to be his passion. He is excited to share his enthusiasm for the game with our Team Nikos players!
