Ray Allen takes director position at Miami Gulliver Prep

NBA legend Ray Allen has taken a job as director of boys and girls basketball at Miami’s

Gulliver Prep, and will also serve as the school’s boys varsity basketball coach.

Gulliver announced the hiring of the former basketball player on Friday. Allen has been involved with Gulliver in the past as an assistant coach for a middle school program. Allen, who has small preteens and teenage children, is a parent at Gulliver Prep, home of the Raiders.

Allen played 18 seasons in the NBA from 1996-2014. He spent time with the Milwaukee Bucks,

Seattle SuperSonics and Boston Celtics before playing two final seasons with the Miami Heat.

The 10-time All-Star won two NBA championships, one with the Celtics in 2008 and another

with the Heat in 2013, and still holds the NBA record for most 3-pointers made in his career. He

was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018.

Allen finished his career with averages of 18.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game.

He is widely considered one of the best shooters in the history of the sport. He made 45.2

percent of his shots from the field and 40.0 percent of his shots from 3-point range throughout

his career.

Gulliver Prep, a school of about 2,200 total students, went 5-16 last season. Gulliver Prep

looked for a new boys basketball coach after Gary DeCesare left the school in May to accept a

basketball coach position at De La Salle Institute in Chicago, Illinois.
