Welcome Boy’s Basketball Coach!

Dear Waldport Schools and Community:

My name is Matt Brown and I will be the new boys’ basketball head coach for Waldport High School.  I also will be teaching 2nd grade at Crestview Heights Elementary.

I was born and raised in Hawaii playing football and basketball. While attending Linfield College, I played and then coached for the Wildcats.

I have coaching experience at Portland Community College and Estacada High School. During the past 2 school years, I have taught 4th and 3rd grade at a school called Shishmaref which is located in Northwestern, Alaska.

At Shishmaref, I have been the varsity girls’ basketball head coach.  Two seasons ago, we won the Bering Sea conference championship, and won the consolation bracket at the state tournament.  Last season, we got 2nd place in our conference and made it to the state tournament again.

I am very thankful for the opportunity to be the head coach the Irish boys’ basketball program and excited to get started.  My goal is to build a strong all-around boys basketball program that excels on and off the court.  Coaching is not a hobby or something I do for fun.  I will pour all of my heart and passion into the basketball program.

I look forward to getting started and meeting all of you.

Go Irish!

Coach Brown
