Kamiak High School athletic director Sean Monica announced Friday in an email that Brandon Corsi has been promoted to head boys basketball coach, after serving as an assistant to Cory West for 10 years.
West resigned on April 4 after a decade in charge of the Knights’ program.
“We are excited that Brandon will both be able to carry on the proud legacy of Kamiak basketball, while also putting his own stamp and identity on the program under his leadership,” Monica said.
Corsi is a Kamiak alumnus and a health/fitness teacher at Olympic View Middle School in the Mukilteo School District.
In 2017-18, Kamiak, led by two-time Herald Player of the Year Carson Tuttle, made its deepest run of West and Corsi’s tenure, beating Union in its first game at the Hardwood Classic to clinch the program’s first-ever berth in the state quarterfinal round.
The Knights finished the season with a record of 17-10, falling to eventual state runner-up Richland in the 4A quarterfinals and Skyview in a consolation game.
Tuttle, who will continue his career at Texas A&M-Commerce, will be one of seven Kamiak varsity players to graduate this spring, so Corsi will have to shuffle the deck a bit in his first season at the helm.
