After weeks of waiting in anticipation the Taylor Ducks finally have their new varsity head boys’ basketball coach in former Brentwood Christian coach Brandon Greene.
“I am excited to be taking over the Ducks boys basketball program. I think anytime you get a head coaching job, there's a certain level of excitement, but there are very few times, if any, you get to take over a program with the tradition and recent success that Taylor High School has experienced,” Greene said.
Coach Greene will be entering his seventh season coaching high school basketball. For the last three seasons he has coached in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) system.
As head coach at Brentwood Christian, Greene led the Bears to an 11-0 district record in 4A District 4, and a 19-17 overall record advancing to the TAPPS 4ARegional Finals in 2018. The success in that season helped push the school up to 5A the following season.
Prior to his time at Brentwood, Greene coached at The Cambridge School of Dallas for 3 years winning the TAPPS 2A State Championship in 2015 as an assistant coach before spending the following two seasons as head varsity basketball coach.
Before beginning his coaching career, Greene played basketball at the University of Texas at Dallas from 2006-2011, where he was a part of the 2009 ASC Conference Championship team and three consecutive NCAA Division III National Tournament qualifiers, including a 2009 Elite Eight appearance.
“I hope to be able to continue that level of success. I look forward to becoming a part of the Taylor community and I'm proud to be a Duck,” Greene said.
Last season the Ducks finished 21-12 winning the Bi-District title.
