Ogden High names Brock Randall new boys basketball coach

March 24, 2018 GMT

OGDEN — Ogden will have a new face prowling the hardwood this winter, but that person isn’t necessarily unfamiliar to Weber County.

Brock Randall, an assistant boys basketball coach at Northridge, was named head boys basketball coach at Ogden High, Tigers athletic director Shawn MacQueen said Friday.

Randall spent time as head girls basketball and baseball coach at Roy High before going to Northridge.

MacQueen was coaching boys basketball at Ogden as well as being the school’s AD.

Ogden principal Luke Rasmussen spoke highly of MacQueen and thanked him for the years he’s coached the team, and also spoke about what set Randall apart in the interview process.

“He’s built such great relationships with kids and he does things the right way, so our committee was very excited to be able to get him,” Rasmussen said Friday.

MacQueen said it was the right time for him to step aside and not be spread so thin during the winter sports season.

The school did not have a full-time teaching job to pair with the coaching position, but Randall paired well with the opening since he is also the parks and recreation director for the city of West Haven.

Randall takes over a Tigers team that went 5-17 this season, including 3-9 in Region 11, and missed the playoffs by two games.

He could not be reached Friday night for comment.
