Director of Athletics

Connor Quigley

Coach Connor Quigley is a former Division III Basketball player who has experience playing and coaching at every level of amateur basketball. With almost a decade of coaching experience, he has a deep understanding of the transition between high school and college basketball.

Coach Quigley's career began at Keiser University under the tutelage of legendary Head Coach Rollie Massimino, a member of the College Basketball Hall of Fame and pioneer of the sport. During Coach Quigley's time at Keiser, the Seahawks amassed a record of 53-14 and finished in the Elite 8 of the 2016 NAIA National Tournament. Coach Quigley had many responsibilities as a member of Coach Massimino’s staff. His main responsibilities included, designing and implementing individual workout programs, developing scouting reports and game strategies, as well as recruiting new players. Coach Quigley aided in the development of 7 Keiser players that went on to play professional basketball: Stanley Whittaker, Andrija Sarenac, Deion McClenton, Brice Jenkins, Stefan Zecevic, Marko Orlic, and Andrija Matic.

Following his time with Coach Massimino, Coach Quigley spent a year working as a College scout based out of South Florida. Aided by his experience working and playing at different collegiate levels, Coach Quigley identified local talent and helped dozens of Florida athletes gain recognition and recruitment interest. During that time he worked closely with members of the Florida community to organize AAU Events and Individual Showcases in order to provide exposure for high school athletes.

Coach Quigley went on to accept a position working for Coach Baker Dunleavy at Quinnipiac University for the 2018-19 Season as a video coordinator. He was able to gain valuable insight to the Division I level while learning from one of the top up and coming coaches in college basketball. His understanding of video operations has become a great aid in the recruitment of his athletes, as he's been able to create an abundance of video content for them to use in their recruitment process.

Coach Quigley made his return to Florida for the 2019-20 season, accepting the Head Coaching position at Triple Threat Prep. The program finished the year with a 20-11 record, including Triple Threat Prep’s first win over a Junior College program (Palm Beach State). 90% of Coach Quigley’s athletes were offered an opportunity to play College basketball, five of whom moved on to play at a Division I Junior College program. Koby Isaac, one of Coach Quigley’s top recruits was named an All American as a Freshman during the 2020-21 season at Southeastern Community College. Coach Quigley is a passionate mentor with a clear understanding of the skills, concepts, and daily habits required to play college basketball. He helped create Palm Beach Prep in order to provide an impactful environment that deeply values the personal growth and the long term sustainability of its Student Athletes.
