Bogues Takes Reigns at United Faith
Former Wake Forest and Charlotte Hornets point guard Muggsy Bogues is the boys’ basketball coach at private United Faith Christian. He will start Tuesday. Bogues, 46, replaces Shaun Wiseman, who led United Faith to three straight appearances in the N.C. 1A Independent Schools championship game. The Falcons won the title in 2009 and 2010. “My goal is to make sure I do a great job this year and give the kids what they need,” Bogues said. “I’m looking forward to working with the kids and helping to build the program.” Bogues was an assistant on Wiseman’s first state championship team at United Faith in 2009, which featured one of the players Bogues mentors and coaches, Ian Miller, now a sophomore point guard at Florida State. Bogues also is close to another current player, 7-foot senior center Peter Jurkin, who has committed to Indiana.
