Tony Fuller Hired as Teacher/Boy's Basketball Coach at MHS


Tony Fuller has been hired as a teacher at Maricopa High School for
2016-17 and will also be the new boy’s basketball head coach. He will
be replacing Coach Jake Neill who recently resigned the boy’s head
basketball coaching position but will continue to teach at MHS.

Coach Fuller earned his Bachelor's degree and his Master's degree from
Pepperdine University.  As a player at Pepperdine, Fuller earned
All-West Coast Conference honors and helped the Waves to the NCAA
Tournament in 1979 and the NIT Tournament in 1980. He then played for
the National Basketball Association's Detroit Pistons and the
Anchorage Knights of the Continental Basketball Association during the
1980-81 season. He played the entire 1981-82 season for Anchorage.
Fuller began his coaching career as men’s assistant coach at
Pepperdine, where he served from 1982-88. From there, Fuller went to
UCLA as men’s assistant coach for four seasons (1989-92) before
obtaining his first men’s head coaching position at San Diego State
University (1992-94). From 1994-96 Fuller served as men’s head coach
at Pepperdine. He was a men’s assistant coach at Colorado State
(1996-98), Utah State (1998-99) and Stanford (1999-2006). For the past
ten years Fuller has served as a teacher at Brophy College Preparatory
High School in Phoenix and was boy’s basketball head coach from
2006-2015. Brophy only had one losing season during that nine year
period. Under Coach Fuller’s leadership from 2011-13, Brophy posted a
record of 66-22 and reached the Division I championship game in 2011.

We are very excited to have an experienced head coach and teacher like
Coach Fuller join our staff at MHS,” stated Athletic Director Mark
Cisterna. “He has an excellent reputation and we are lucky to have
him. I know our students and our athletes will learn a lot from him.”
