Naismith Hall of Famer Ray Allen – a two-time NBA champion and 10-time All-Star – has become the new head coach of the boys basketball team at Gulliver Prep School in Florida.

Through 18 years in the NBA, Allen solidified himself as one of the greatest three-point shooters in the history of the sport — shooting 40% percent from behind the arc on his career. The Naismith Hall of Famer still sits atop the list of all-time three-point field goals made with 2,973.
Allen notched two NBA championships through his time in the league: one with the Boston Celtics in 2008 and one with his current hometown Miami Heat in 2013.
After retiring from the league in 2014, Allen stayed put in the Miami area with his wife, Shannon Walker Williams, and their four children. In addition to the release of his memoir, From the Outside: My Journey Through Life and the Game I Love, in 2017, the 10-time NBA All-Star opened a chain of organic fast-food restaurants with his wife.
Now, with his brilliant basketball mind, Allen will take on coaching at the high school level.
This news comes just one day after Jason Terry, the N0. 7 three-point shooter of all time, landed his first heading coaching job with the Denver Nuggets’ G-League affiliate.
