Highlights

Began coaching career in 1989 as head coach of the Canberra Capitals in the Women's National Basketball League (WNBL), before becoming the Australian Opals coach that same year. Continued solely in the role until being named Perth Breakers head coach in 1993. The Breakers reached the finals every season of his four-year tenure, winning the 1993 Grand Final and MOLLOY was named Coach of the Year in 1995. Moved to the National Basketball League (NBL) in 2001 to coach the Cairns Taipans (2001-05) and South Dragons (2006-09), where he was an assistant to player/coach Shane HEAL (AUS), winning the 2009 NBL championship.

After the Dragons folded, became head coach of the Australian U17 men's team, who won a silver medal at the 2012 U17 World Championship. Returned to the WNBL in 2013 to coach the Melbourne Boomers, where he won his second Coach of the Year award. Appointed assistant coach for the New Zealand women's team for the 2017 Asia Cup, before being promoted to head coach in February 2018. The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games will be his senior international head coaching debut. (basketball.org.nz, 12 Feb 2018)

BATTLE OF THE SEXES
Having coached both men and women at an elite level, believes female basketballers are more techincally skilled. "The simple and bleeding obvious thing is women are not men. So I think the girls have to adapt – they play a tactically smarter game and the best skills on display are often fundamentals like shooting, footwork and pivoting." (basketballvictoria.com.au, 2017)
