Coach Keathley Named A Top 10 Non-NBA Coach

keathleyDynasty Athlete Representation would like to congratulate the East Kentucky Miners’ head coach Kevin Keathley for being named to Pro Basketball News’ “2009 Top 10 Pro Coaches Not in the NBA.” This honor is nothing new to Keathley, who has been a part of this list several years now. Keathley placed in this year at number six spot. However, unlike many of the others on the list, Keathley is just in the beginning stages of his extremely promising career. Many basketball analysts regard him as one of the top young coaches in the game of basketball. Keathley can add this accomplishment to his impressive trophy cabinet in which already boasts the 2005 ABA Coach of the Year.

Keathley has been in the coaching industry for 10 seasons now, and has yet to record a losing record. He is an innovator of the game and is best known for his extreme version of the Run-N-Gun offensive which was responsible for his team averaging an absurd 111 points per game in the 2007-2008 season.  It is a true rarity to find such a young coach with such a vast knowledge and passion for the game. With that combination, the sky is the limit for Coach Keathley.
