Lund is a 1991 graduate of RHS who helped lead the Mustangs to a second-place finish in the state tournament his senior year before walking on to the team at Washington State. He had been serving as acting head coach at Lake Washington High School after head coach Barry Johnson—a former Mustang teammate—resigned amid allegations of sexual harassment earlier this year.
In an emailed statement, RHS Athletic Director John Appelgate said Lund's familiarity with the program makes him a great fit for the job.
"We are extremely excited to have Brian returning home," Appelgate said. "He is a huge part of Redmond’s basketball history, and is the right person to continue on the tradition of success for RHS student athletes both on and off the court."
