Mike Kluk has at least one advantage over most coaches taking over a basketball program: the chance to warm up.
Kluk was named the full-time head coach of Los Alamos’ boys basketball program Wednesday morning, getting the “interim” tag dropped from his title from last season.
In January, Los Alamos head coach Fil Dominguez left the program abruptly, citing family reasons and the health of his wife. With Dominguez’s departure, Kluk was installed and coached throughout the Hilltoppers’ District 2-4A season.
Now, as the head coach for the entire 2014-15 season, Kluk said he’s ready for the challenge.
“I don’t think we’re going to change a whole lot,” he said. “We’ve got two assistant coaches who have said they’re coming back, so the coaching staff’s not going to change much. With that, I can feel better about it, so let’s start getting ready.”
Los Alamos won just two games in 26 outings last season, with Dominguez earning one of those wins and Kluk the other. That win came early in district play when the Hilltoppers upset the Capital Jaguars 40-38 Jan. 31 at home.
