Big Valley Christian’s head coach, Larry Shimel, died on Wednesday. He coached the team since the program started at the school nine years ago.
The team announced the addition of Brendan Malone to the coaching staff on Tuesday. Mike Malone had said when he was hired that he planned to hire his father.
The Malones are the second father-son duo to hold the title of NBA head coach, joining Bill and Eric Musselman. The Malones also worked on the same staff as assistants for the New York Knicks in 2003-04.
