Coaching Change in Alabama

The Alabama School for the Deaf will have a new coach on the sidelines of boys basketball games this season. Walter Ripley is leading the team this season, as he once did before becoming the school's athletic director. He also lead the girls basketball team from 2002-2007. Patrick Robinson has given up the role to serve as director of the school’s regional center. He won three national championships during his time as coach, the last one coming during last season when the Silent Warriors went 26-2. The team starts the new season against the Atlanta Area School for the Deaf this Friday.
