Peter Longgood, previously an assistant at Vallivue, will take over the Kuna boys basketball program for the 2016-17 season, the school announced Thursday.
Longgood replaces Joe Kleffner, who led the Kavemen for the past year and a half, including a 9-13 campaign in 2015-16.
Longgood joins the program as Kuna moves up to the 5A classification next season for the first time.
“It is a pleasure to become part of a great school and community,” Longgood said in a release. “I am grateful for the opportunity to coach and teach at Kuna High School. It’s an exciting challenge to lead a team that will be competing with some the best athletes and coaches in the state at the 5A level.”
