Brevard High School announced Wednesday the hiring of David Siniard as their new boys' basketball coach.

Siniard replaces retiring head coach Tim Trantham, who resigned at the end of the 2013-14 season.

"We are very excited to have coach Siniard back on the BHS coaching staff as head men's basketball coach," said BHS athletic director John Hart. "David has a passion for the game of basketball like no other. Combined with his competitive spirit and drive to win ballgames - that guy is a workhorse. He is going to put it all out there for these players.

"He has very strong ties to the Transylvania County school system and the Brevard community. He has coached at a high level, knows what it takes to win, and is going to instill that in his players."

Siniard has been with the Transylvania County School system since 1983. He has taught physical education at the elementary level through high school.

From 1983 to 1999, he was the coach for junior varsity men's basketball, varsity women's basketball, and Brevard Middle School football.

After a brief leave from the school system, from 1999 until 2007, Siniard returned to work at Davidson River School in the High School Rebound class and now is working as the graduation coach for students in his "I Will" program.

Since his time at Davidson River, Siniard has worked with the High-Risk students of Transylvania County. David also served as an assistant coach for the Brevard College Men's Basketball team from 2006 through 2010. During his time there he served time as strength and conditioning coach, helped with on court practices, and game strategies.

Siniard graduated Western Carolina University in 1982 with a degree in Health/Physical Education.

After he began his career with the Transylvania County School system, he has worked as an officer for the county's Special Olympic program from 1992-1994, served as President of the Church League Basketball program in 1995, and from 1998 through 2005 coached a local YBOA/AAU team.

Those teams played in the YBOA State Championships three times, went to the YBOA National Championships three times, and had seven of his players go on to play college basketball.

Siniard has been happily married to Deborah Pressley Siniard for 31 years. They have two children, Brooke who is 29 and Cody who is 27. They both reside in Transylvania County and remain close to David and Debbie.
