WILLETON Tigers Basketball Association president Phil Nixon has announced the club’s men’s State Basketball League (SBL) head Coach Alan Black has resigned from his role to take up a consulting position in Malaysia.

Black’s last game as head coach will be against South West Slammers on May 14.

The Willetton board has appointed Stephen Black as head coach, with Adam Nener and Mark Heron as assistant coaches.

Mr Nixon said the board wished Mr Black well in his new position overseas.

“The board wishes Alan well with his appointment and thank him for his contribution to the Willetton Basketball Association,” he said.

“Alan’s service as head coach of our SBL program has been greatly appreciated. He has established important building blocks in our SBL program which gives the club confidence of a bright future.”

Mr Black said the decision was not an easy one.

“It was a tough decision to make as the Willetton Tigers are such an important part of my life however the opportunity from a career perspective was too good to pass up,” he said.
