ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - The Albuquerque Bullsnakes have named Mike Huston its first head coach. Bullsnakes owner Nick Lourenco made the move late Wednesday night. The Bullsnakes is an expansion team of the semi-pro American Basketball Association. The team will play its first season starting in November 2019.
Huston's last head coaching job was with the Eldorado Eagles girls basketball team. He retired after a dozen years as head coach. Huston has 33 years of coaching boys and girls basketball in New Mexico and is excited about his new opportunity.
"It's an opportunity for me to get back in the game coaching wise," said Huston. "It's a chance to work with young men and these are guys that have finished their eligibility more than likely. It's an opportunity to showcase them and perhaps get them some contracts overseas."
The Bullsnakes hope to make a footprint in the community by stocking the team with local players. Tryouts are set for Nov. 17 and Nov. 24. Players hoping to get involved with the team can get more information at gobullsnakes.com.
ALBUQUERQUE BULLSNAKES PLAN TO HOOP IN THE DUKE CITY IN 2019
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - The Albuquerque Bullsnakes is an expansion team out of the semi pro league of the American Basketball Association based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The team plans to start their first season in the Duke City in 2019. The Bullsnakes will compete in the far west division of the league.
Owner Nick Lourenco is working on the business end of the new club and hopes to have a coach sometime in October. He also would like to hold player tryouts shortly after. Lourenco wants the team to have a strong local flavor. "We have several interest from players from out of state where coaches who want to coach the team are out of state," said Lourenco.
"We want local talent. We are looking for people that live in Albuquerque, that have the best interest in Albuquerque." Lourenco is currently negotiating with a pair of venues to provide a home for the new club. The ABA season starts in November and runs through April.
