Brad’s Background

Brad Niley, a Celina, OH native, graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2008 with a degree in Sociology. At that time worked as a Logistics Account Executive for a few years, and it was during that time when he realized that his passion was working with kids and helping them reach their full potential. He graduated from Ohio University in 2012 with a degree in Education and has been teaching ever since.

For five years Brad served grades five through seven both as a teacher and a coach. No matter the subject, Brad created an atmosphere in his classroom that was student-centered, engaging and energetic. His classroom was not just about the subject at hand, but also on developing character and building skills that will be used in the real world.

It is with excitement that Brad joins Just Hoops, eager to put his education of teaching and learning to work to help players reach their full potential on and off the court.
