Myles Thrash Named Coach of the Year

BGA Head Varsity Girls Basketball Coach Myles Thrash has been voted TSSAA District 3 Coach of the Year by his coaching peers for the third consecutive year and first as a coach at BGA.

“I’m so honored and grateful to be named coach of the year in my first year as head coach at BGA. It means a lot to be voted this honor while at BGA, where it all started for me as a coach,” said Thrash. “I could not have received this recognition without the help of my super assistant, Coach Amanda Nowlin, and a great hardworking group of girls! The future is bright here at BGA!”

Thrash was hired last April after a successful run at Brentwood High School, where he compiled a 98-28 record over four years. He was the 12 AAA District Coach of the Year in 2019 and 2020. His 2019 team finished 29-3 and was a State Tournament Semifinalist. He also has served as Brentwood’s Boys Varsity Assistant since 2016 and has coached competitive travel and AAU teams since 2007. Thrash previously worked at BGA as an Assistant Girls Varsity Coach, Junior Varsity Coach, and Middle School Coach from 2012-2015.
Thrash is a graduate of Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Ala., where he played collegiate basketball. Following graduation, he played over ten years of professional basketball internationally and with the American Basketball Association, World Basketball Association, Central Basketball Association, and the NBA Developmental League.
In addition to coaching, Thrash serves as a Middle and Upper School Learning Specialist at BGA.
