Catalina Foothills boys basketball coach Mark Felix resigned earlier this week after two seasons with the team and has accepted an offer to coach at Ironwood Ridge, according to Foothiils athletic director Jody Brase.
I-Ridge athletic director Phil Tilicki said the school will present a candidate for approval at the district board meeting on June 4 to replace former coach Brian Peabody but wouldn’t confirm who that person is.
However, all signs point to Felix. He teaches in the Amphitheater school district at Copper Creek Elementary School and was an assistant with Peabody who returned to coach at Pima College last month after leading the Nighthawks since 2007.
