Lance Maha, who coached boys basketball at West Mifflin for two decades, is returning to the WPIAL after one season away.

Maha was announced Tuesday as coach at Propel Braddock Hills, a charter school team that made its WPIAL debut last season.

Maha’s teams reached the playoffs 17 times in his 20 seasons at West Mifflin. He resigned after the 2017-18 season with a career record of 315-247. His coaching career started at Quigley Catholic.

“There aren’t many coaches with coach Maha’s experience and pedigree in the region let alone the state,” Propel athletic director Alan Alcalde said. “He checked off all the right boxes during our interview, and it was easy to see how much of a perfect fit he would be for what we were aiming to accomplish: build a successful program but more importantly, develop successful young men and student-athletes.”

Propel Braddock Hills went 3-18 overall last season, 3-11 in Section 1-2A. Next season will be the team’s third overall and second in the WPIAL.
