2017 South West Slammers Men's coach Charles Nix has signed up as the new coach of the Perth Redbacks.
Nix was named SBL Men's Coach of the Year at the yearly awards in September, after taking the Men's Slammers to 5th spot after a slow start to the year and almost had them knocking off the eventual champions.
He relinquished his role just after the end of the season due to the travel pressures back and forth from Perth to Bunbury four times a week.
The Women's Perth Redbacks finished the 2017 SBL season in 7th with just 8 wins from 22 games, and was knocked out 2-0 in the Quarter Final series.
The search is on for his replacement at the Slammers.
