Flames appoint Guy Molloy as interim head coach

April 18, 2023 | Sydney Flames news

Two-time WNBL Coach of the Year Guy Molloy has been appointed to an interim head coach role for the Sydney Flames.

A veteran of coaching over 250 WNBL games, Molloy will provide strategic advice and planning in the current off-season period. 

Molloy has coached Canberra, Perth and Melbourne in the WNBL, most recently coaching the Melbourne Boomers to the WNBL Championship in the 2021-22 WNBL season.

He also coached the Cairns Taipans for five years in the NBL from 2001 and was the lead assistant coach for the South Dragons in their NBL championship-winning team in 2009. 


He was also an assistant coach of the Australian Opals from 1989-1994. 

He is currently the head coach of the NZ national women’s team, the Tall Ferns.

Molloy has extensive experience in the WNBL and basketball more broadly – he has dedicated his life to it.

The relationships he has crafted within the WNBL circles are extraordinary and his expertise in roster construction in advance of the upcoming Flames season will be invaluable. 

The WNBL announced last week that free agency, which was scheduled to start on Wednesday, April 12, had been delayed indefinitely.
