Sioux Falls, SD (KWSN) – Augustana College is set to announce that Sioux Falls Roosevelt Boys’ Basketball coach Lee Taylor has accepted the position of Assistant Athletic Director.
The announcement came late Monday night; Taylor has served as the bench boss of the Rough Riders since 2009, and was an Admission Counselor with Augustana. Taylor also worked in Roosevelt’s administration office prior to joining the admissions team at Augie. His coaching resume includes stops at Lake Forest college in Illinois and a stint on the Vikings Men’s staff under Tom Billeter.
A search for a new boy’s coach at Roosevelt will begin immediately. Last year’s Rough Riders squad finished 22-3 and captured the school’s first AA state title in basketball since 2000. A formal announcement of Lee’s hiring is expected on Tuesday.
The move reunites Lee with Slade Larscheid, the former RHS and current Augustana AD.
