Amos Connolly named McMaster Marauders head coach
HAMILTON, Ont. - Amos Connolly has been named
the new coach of the McMaster Marauders men's basketball team.
"We had tremendous interest in the position from across the country and even from the U.S.," said Jeff Giles, McMaster's director of Athletics and Recreation. "It gave the selection committee a great slate of candidates from which to choose and we believe we've found a coach with the best combination of experience, commitment to player and team development, and a plan to take the Marauders to a national championship."
Amos brings a wealth of experience to the position having coached for the past fifteen years in the Hamilton community, including seven years as an assistant coach at McMaster where he helped guide both the women's and men's teams to provincial OUA championships. He's a McMaster graduate and is the director of the Basketball Academy in the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board.
"This is a dream job," said Amos. "Hamilton is my community and it's a real honour to have the opportunity to help McMaster continue to develop its players and its outstanding basketball program."
