Miners head coach steps down

BALLARAT Miners head coach Guy Molloy has today stepped down from his role with the club.

Molloy cited family reasons for his decision, which he announced in front of a media gathering at the Minerdome this morning.

He also vacates his position as the Ballarat Basketball Elite Programs Manager.

“I have given over three years continuous service to a club I’ve grown to love in the Miners, but it 

has come at the cost of significant time away from family in Melbourne. In particular, the 

separation from two young daughters both currently in primary school has become too much and I 

need to be back in Melbourne full-time.  But I will certainly treasure my time in Ballarat and want 

to thank the many players, coaches, administrators, parents, and other volunteers who have made 

my time so rewarding,” Molloy said.

“I still remain very attached to Ballarat Basketball – I’m putting myself out there as a mentor to 

players, both senior and junior, and I will come and watch as many Miners games as I can.”
