Australia’s oldest and most recognised basketball club today announced the appointment of Brad Pineau as joint head coach of its senior men’s team for season 2019. Brad will join current head coach, Nick Abdicevic in the role. The Tigers team will compete in the newly formed Basketball Victoria Elite League.
Pineau played at college in the USA and then for the Tigers in the NBL. He has had an extensive career as a coach and is a long time Tiger’s loyalist.
Commenting on the appointment, Tiger’s President Joel Williams said “This is a great acquisition. In Nick we already have one of the most experienced and respected coaches in the game, so adding Brad gives us more depth and resources. They have worked together previously and will complement each other well”.
The panel is further enhanced by the appointment of Jayson Lomer as assistant coach.
