ASHLAND, Va. - Former Randolph-Macon men's basketball player and assistant coach Sean McAloon '98 was recently hired as the head coach of the national high school team at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.
Brian Nash, IMG Academy's Director of Basketball, was quoted as saying, "Sean has established himself as one of the top coaches in the country and is a proven winner. We're thrilled to have him join our staff."
McAloon was head coach at St. John's College High School in Washington, D.C. for the past five years after serving as head coach at Benedictine College Preparatory School in Richmond, Va. for seven years. St. John's was 25-10 this past season and won the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference in 2015.
An All-ODAC performer for the Yellow Jackets, McAloon was a four-year letter-winner and two-time captain under head coach Hal Nunnally. He was All-ODAC Second Team as a senior. Following graduation, McAloon served as an assistant coach at R-MC and at Bucknell.
IMG Academy went 26-2 this past season and reached the quarterfinals of the Dick's Sporting Goods High School Nationals. The Ascenders were ranked No. 11 in the final USA Today Super 25 rankings.
A pair of Top 20 performers will be on the IMG Academy roster for the upcoming season. Emmitt Williams is ranked No. 7 overall in the ESPN 60, and teammate Silvio De Sousa is No. 20.
McAloon replaces Vince Walden, who accepted an assistant coaching position at Arkansas State.
