Scott Townsend, a 1995 alum of Bradenton Christian, has been named the school's interim boys basketball coach.
He replaces David Magley, who stepped down earlier this month after 11 seasons.
Townsend has been with the program for 10 years.
Allan Gerber, BCS' athletic director, said a search for a full-time coach will begin at the conclusion of the 2011-12 season. Until then, Townsend and his staff "have our full support," Gerber said.
