Royal Palm Beach dismisses boys’ basketball coach Drew Quinn 

By Jeff Greer

Head boys’ basketball coach Drew Quinn will not be retained by Royal Palm Beach, the former coach confirmed Tuesday. The school informed Quinn of its decision on Friday.

Quinn spent four seasons at the helm, coaching the Wildcats to a 58-47 record in that span. His 2011-12 team made the second regional playoff appearance in school history and the first since 2004. Royal Palm lost 71-68 to Atlantic in the regional quarterfinals last Thursday.

The Wildcats, who finished 17-10 this season, return every player for next season.

“I’ve had a great career coaching and I’d like to continue,” Quinn said, “but I wish them the best of luck going forward. It’s time to move on.”
