Rob Ridnour has resigned as head coach of the Bellingham Slam of the International Basketball League.  Ridnour was the only coach in team history and steps down after nine seasons on the job and three league championships, including the last two years.

Former Slam player and assistant coach Tyler Amaya takes over as head coach.  Amaya just completed his first season as an assistant coach at Skagit Valley College.  Amaya is a former standout player at Mt. Vernon High School and Western Washington University.

The Slam will hire an assistant coach before the start of the new season, which begins April 25.

Tyler Amaya will be a guest in The Zone today on KPUG.
