Pallesi assumes Selma hoops

Selma has hired Mike Pallesi to take over its boys basketball program.

Pallesi has 15 years experience as a varsity head coach, the past four at Sanger. He also spent 11 years at Sierra, where he led the Chieftains to Central Sequoia League and Central Section championships in 2001, and one season at Fowler, leading the Redcats to a co-West Sierra League title.

Pallesi replaces Randy Esraelian, the Bears' athletic director, who coached the boys basketball team on an interim basis last season. Pallesi will teach math at Selma.
