Episode 218: Coach Keith Guy (Head Boys Basketball Coach Muskegon High School) Muskegon , MI ("Muskegon BigRed Culture")
Guy is a 1993 Muskegon Heights alumnus, who was starting point guard on the Tigers’ state-finals team that year. He spent 11 years working and coaching at his alma mater, nine of them as head coach. The 2019-20 school year marked his eighth as head coach and athletic director at Muskegon High School. In total, Guy has made nine trips to the final four as a player, assistant coach or head coach. He guided the Big Reds to a banner season in 2013-14, when they rolled to a Class A state championship and finished with a 28-0 record. The 1992-93 season was a special one for Guy and Muskegon Heights. The Tigers were ranked No. 2 in the state and made it to the Class B championship game at The Palace of Auburn Hills, where they lost to Saginaw Buena Vista, 69-52. Guy, a 5-foot-10 spark plug, finished with six points and five assists in the game. Maurice Sain, who is a longtime assistant coach on Guy’s staff, led the Tigers with 14 points and 12 rebounds in the ’93 title game. Guy has built Muskegon into a perennial power. The Big Reds have a string of conference and district titles going, and who knows what the 20-2 team in 2019-20 could have done, as its season was cut short because of the COVID-19 shutdown.
