The last time Ray Allen took the floor as an NBA player was in 2014 for the Miami Heat. Since retiring he’s been busy, publishing a memoir in 2018, appearing frequently on various networks, and leveling up his golf game. But now the former Heat sharpshooter is returning to basketball, just not in the way you might expect.

Allen was recently announced as the Director of Boys and Girls basketball at Miami’s Gulliver Prep School. He’ll also be the head coach of the boy’s varsity basketball team.

The news was revealed via the Gulliver Prep official account:

Allen’s Game 6 shot in the NBA Finals made him a Miami Heat legend, and though he might not be involved directly with the Heat anymore, it’s still great to see him playing a big role in the South Florida community. We’re wishing Ray luck in the upcoming season.
