Eastlake after new head basketball coach as Dailey steps down | Prep sports news

Eastlake's Brian Dailey announced he was stepping down from his position as head boys basketball coach

Eastlake’s boys basketball team will be led by a new face in 2014-15, after Brian Dailey announced he was stepping down due to career obligations.

“Eastlake is in my Heart and Soul and everyday coaching our young men has been a blessing,” said Dailey, himself an Eastlake alum and member of the basketball program during the school’s early years, through a release from athletic director Pat Bangasser.

Eastlake beat Ballard in the first round of the 4A KingCo tournament this season, before dropping a winner-to-state game against eventual Class 4A champion Garfield, and a loser-out game against Bothell.

“We wish him the very best and thank him for his service to the Eastlake community,” Bangasser said. “He is a first class act and we will miss him dearly.”
