Rick Turner, who six years ago made "a blind leap of faith" to pursue his dream of becoming a basketball coach, has been rewarded.
Turner has been selected to be the head coach of the Bellevue Nighthawks, a Continental Basketball Association team that will begin play next fall.
Turner, 36, had served in various roles with the Sonics before quitting in 1997 to follow his dream. He is a former Bellevue Community College basketball coach and athletic director.
The Nighthawks will play a 48-game season beginning Nov. 15. The CBA is comprised of seven teams but could grow to 11 by next fall.
