With its boys basketball program barren of summer workouts and steadily falling behind opponents who are much more active in the offseason, Valley finally hired a coach Thursday night.

Mark Faulx, a former assistant at Plum and Penn Hills, was named to replace Phil Cope, who resigned abruptly in May after two seasons.

Faulx, who was a double-digit-scoring point guard for Knoch in the early 1990s, went on to play at Indiana (Pa.). He is the son of longtime Knoch assistant coach Dee Faulx.

Valley still has to fill its girls basketball head coach position, which has been vacant since February.

• Valley also approved the hiring of former head football coach Troy Hill as a volunteer football assistant, pending clearances. Hill was 36-33 with four playoff appearances in seven seasons as head coach of the Vikings.

Bill Beckner Jr. is the local sports editor of the Valley News Dispatch. Reach him at bbeckner@tribweb.com.
