Findlay Prep's Peck to coach in NBA D-League

Posted: Updated:

Findlay Prep basketball coach Michael Peck will take his coaching talents to the pro level.

Peck was named the head coach of the NBA Developmental League's Idaho Stampede, the team announced Tuesday.

The Stampede is an affiliate of the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers.

Peck's accomplishments at the Henderson college preparatory academy include a 157-8 win-loss record in five seasons, a No. 1 national ranking in three of the last four years and a 45-game win streak.

Peck has also coached current NBA players Tristan Thompson, Avery Bradley and Joel Anthony, to name a few.

"Obviously, his record speaks for itself," Stampede Managing Investor Bill Ilett said. "In addition, he has proven he can develop players of NBA caliber and we look forward to him bringing future success to the Idaho Stampede."

This will be Peck's debut stint at the professional level. His experience includes assistant roles at Saginaw Valley State (Mich.) and University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The Stampede said Peck was able to attract the national exposure the Findlay Prep team has enjoyed during his years there. Findlay Prep has played in 16 nationally-televised games on ESPN, the team noted.

The team also touched on Peck's role in the community, citing his placement on the Board of Directors of Best Buddies of Southern Nevada.

A news conference to formally introduce Peck is pending.

Findlay Prep has not yet named Peck's replacement.
