A familiar face hired to lead Wildcat boys hoops .
Westbury Christian Head of School Michael D. White has announced that Tyler Guidry, a 2011 WCS alumnus, will be the next head coach of the school’s Wildcat boys basketball program.
Guidry was most recently the assistant men’s basketball coach at Wiley College, which also has the Wildcats as its mascot, where he helped the team achieve a 20-9 record last season. Before that, he was a graduate assistant and assistant coach for two seasons for the men’s basketball team at the University of St. Thomas, which earned a Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) Tournament berth and had a RRAC Freshman of the Year during his time with the Celts.
Guidry is also an active head coach with the Houston Hoopstars AAU program and has coached middle school boys basketball and worked with the Wildcat Sports Academy summer basketball camp at WCS in the past.
As a student-athlete, Guidry was a member of the Southwestern Assemblies of God University Lions team that won the RRAC title in 2013, and he played in two of the WCS Wildcats’ 21 TAPPS state championship-winning seasons, in 2009 and 2010.
“Tyler is mature beyond his years as a basketball coach and a leader of young men,” said Mark Krimm, Westbury Christian athletic director. “He is anchored in our rich basketball tradition — with a love for the game, and for WCS — and has a vision to lead the program into a new era.”
Guidry has a Bachelor of Science in business from Southwestern Assemblies of God University and an MBA from the University of St. Thomas.
