Mick Downer joins Brisbane Bullets coaching staff
The Brisbane Bullets have secured the services of experienced NBL coach and current Technical Assistant for the Australian Boomers Mick Downer as an Assistant Coach. Downer will join Brisbane Bullets Head Coach Andrej Lemanis and Assistant Coach CJ Bruton to round out an impressive coaching staff for the club’s much anticipated return to NBL in the 2016/17 season. He enjoyed a successful stint at the Cairns from 2009 to 2015, including two Grand Final series, as an Assistant Coach to Aaron Fearne at the Taipans. “It's an honour to be part of the re-birth of the Brisbane Bullets and I'm thankful to Andrej and the guys for the opportunity,” Downer said. “I grew up watching and supporting this team as a kid through the successful 1980’s and early 1990's and I understand how important it is to the basketball community in South-East Queensland to have this iconic brand back. “I'm excited about contributing in whatever way I can to help us being successful on and off the court and I'm looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead."
