Dandenong Basketball is excited to announce Brent Andrews as Head Coach of our Junior Ranger Boys program, stepping in for Nick Mihai who departs DBA for a new full-time position elsewhere within basketball. We thank Nick for his valuable contribution to Dandenong Basketball over the past decade and wish him all the best in his new role.
Beginning his coaching career here at Dandenong Basketball in 2011, Brent has gone on to coach at nearly every level of association basketball, having served in VJBL, Youth League and NBL1 coaching roles.
Most recently Brent served as our Youth League Men’s head coach, leading our Youth Men to an impressive Watson Pool 2nd place finish after the season was cut short due to COVID. He has also had roles with a number of Basketball Victoria programs and initiatives and was recently named as an Assistant Coach with the 2022 U16 VIC Metro Boys.
Along with that coaching background Brent also knows what it means to be a Junior Ranger, having played his junior basketball with our program along with his sister and WNBL Ranger Emma Andrews. Brent and Emma’s mother Cheryl also served as the WNBL Ranger team manager for a number of years, making the Andrews family one of the many special families with strong connections to our association.
With those connections in mind the opportunity to lead our Ranger Boys is something that Brent has jumped at, giving him the chance to give back to the association that his family has been a part of for such a long time.
“I am overjoyed with the opportunity to be an even bigger part of this association,” said Brent. “Having had that family history here at the association I couldn’t be more excited to continue to be a Dandenong Ranger.
“Looking at all the wonderful families and coaches we have here at Dandenong, I’m ecstatic to be able to work with everyone and help our association continue to develop and grow in 2022 and beyond.”
