Matt King isn’t wasting a lot of time starting in his new position.
Los Alamos High School announced Tuesday night that King will take over as head coach of the Hilltopper boys basketball program. King will replace outgoing head coach Alan Kirk, who announced his resignation last month.
King, who is currently at Volcano Vista High School in Albuquerque, is wrapping up the academic year there, but he’s already got workouts scheduled with the Hilltopper returners tonight and Thursday. King will hold individual workout sessions both nights to get a glimpse of what he’ll have heading into the 2010-11 season.
For the last two seasons, King has been an assistant varsity coach at Volcano Vista, a relatively new school on Albuquerque’s west side that showed some great strides in athletics last season despite having only a handful of seniors attending. Prior to his current gig, King spent two years as a varsity assistant at La Cueva, where he earned All-State honors as a player in the late 1990s.
“It helped me enormously that I’ve gotten to work with two of the best coaches in the state,” King said in a telephone interview this morning. “Greg Brown and Frank Castillo have been enormously helpful. They understand how championship programs are made.”
