Mountain Pointe recommends new head boys basketball coach

Mountain Pointe High School is recommending that Pride alum Kaimarr Price be approved by the Tempe Union High School District Governing Board as the school’s next head boys basketball coach.

Coach Price graduated from Mountain Pointe High School in 2007, where he was part of a state semi-finalist team in 2006 under Coach Sam Ballard. Following high school, Price went on to play collegiately at Chandler Gilbert Community College, Western Illinois University and Biola University. A productive college player at every level, he then received an opportunity to have a professional career playing in Croatia and France.

Injuries led to an early retirement and an immediate start in coaching, returning to Mountain Pointe on Coach Hosea Graham’s staff. During this time, Kaimarr served as a varsity assistant, player development coach and freshman coach. He then made the jump to coaching at the collegiate level for Ottawa University under Coach Matt Keeley.

“I know the quality of people who come through these doors at Mountain Pointe and I truly believe that this is the single best coaching job in the state of Arizona,” Price said. “I love this school and this community and look forward to serving both and giving back to the place and people who have given me so much. I am happy to be home.”

Price has owned and operated a basketball training and recruiting company, The Talent Farm. Also heavily involved in the club basketball scene, Price has worked in conjunction with just about every major program in the state of Arizona as well as a couple of out of state programs.

Upon approval of the Governing Board, Price will be working on campus as a security guard in the 2019-2020 school year.
