La Salle High School announced that Michael Lynch has accepted the position of boys’ varsity basketball coach for the Lancers. La Salle’s Principal, Brother Christopher Brady, FSC, said,”Mr. Lynch brings his exceptional coaching ability and his extensive basketball background to La Salle and we are very excited about the future of Lancer Basketball. He will be a wonderful addition to our community.”

Lynchhas been the Head Basketball Coach atPrice High School in Los Angeles since 1996 where he has recorded a 511-105 record in 19 seasons.His teams made 12 CIF Finals appearances coming away with 10 CIF Championship trophies while setting the CIF consecutive Championship win streak at eight.Price has won six state titles, eight regional titles, 10 division titles, and 11 league titles. Under Lynch’s leadership, Price is only one of two schools to ever win four consecutive boys state titles.

Lynch has done more than just win games. He has sent 29 student-athletes to college on athletic scholarships, 19 of which to Division I universities and another dozen to Division II and NAIA Universities.He was the Athletic Director for the Knights from 2004 to 2006 and is the current AD having been appointed in 2013.
