Rider Promotes LaKeith Grant to Head Basketball Coach

Rider High School Boys Basketball will have its third head coach in as many years next season.

WFISD Athletic Director Kenny Catney announced Monday that Assistant Coach LaKeith Grant has been promoted to Head Coach of the Raiders.

Grant played two seasons (2004-05, 05-06) at Midwestern State.

Former Raider coach Rob McIlhaney resigned on Friday to join former MSU coach Grant McCasland's staff at Abilene Christian.

The team went 10-16 this year with a 4-8 record in District 4-4A.

Last year McIlhaney replaced Mark Richardson, who resigned after two seasons at Rider.
