The Alaska 49ers will be Alaska’s second ABA team located in Anchorage. CEO Carol Taylor and General Manger Gabriel Taylor plan to lead the new expansion team forward in the American Basketball Association. Leading the 49ers into battle on the court this upcoming season will be Head Coach Harvey Watson.
Coach Watson was an assistant coach last season with the Alaska Quake. He assisted in helping lead the Quake to a 7-6 season, while taking the #1 KINGS to the final seconds before coming up short. After demonstrating leadership skills and an impressive knowledge of the game, Coach Watson’s head coaching decision came easy. He is ready to lead his team out of the Quake’s shadow, while making their own mark in the American Basketball Association League.
