Men's Basketball Coaching Staff
Head Coach: Kyle Gray
Kyle Gray will begin his second year as head coach of Edmonds Community College men’s basketball in 2013-14. Coach Gray and his staff brought a winning tradition – and a lot of excitement – back to Seaview Gymnasium during last year’s campaign.
Gray led the Tritons to a 26-4 overall mark, with EdCC winning the North League title with a 13-1 record. Gray was named NWAACC North Coach of the Year, forward Shaq McKissic earned league MVP honors and point guard Ricardo Maxwell was named Defensive Player of the Year. Forward Jacob Spade garnered All-Academic status.
Following the regular season, Edmonds advanced to the NWAACC tournament for the first time in years, beating Lower Columbia (75-54), Clackamas (81-71) and Spokane (68-64), before losing the title game to Chemeketa, 84-79.
Both McKissic and Maxwell were named to the all-tournament team. McKissic landed with Division I Arizona State University with Maxwell transferring to DII powerhouse Western Washington.
A seasoned NWAACC veteran, Gray previously served eight years as the head coach of the men's basketball team at Seattle Community College until the athletic program was cut following the 2011-12 season.
In his eight years with the Storm, Gray coached several competitive teams, including the 2011-12 squad that finished one game from making the NWAACC Championship Tournament from the tough North Division.
Gray also organized his Free Throws for a Cause fundraiser, where the men's basketball team raised more than $18,000 for local charities and nonprofit organizations in the last seven years.
Gray earned his BA in Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences from the University of Washington in 2005 and his master's in Physical Education from Seattle Pacific University in 2010. Prior to UW and SPU, Gray graduated from Ballard High School in 1997, where he played both basketball and baseball for the Beavers.
He is the elementary PE teacher at Viewlands Elementary School. Gray was born in Seattle and currently lives in Ballard with his wife, Kadee.
