Brilhante: Leaving Beamer ‘not a decision that was easy’

Brent Brilhante admits he hasn’t told a lot of people he resigned as Beamer’s head boys basketball coach a few weeks ago because he didn’t know what to say about it.

“It’s not a decision that was easy,” he said. “I resigned because I thought it was the best decision for myself, and I don’t usually talk like that….I had a blast for two years at Beamer. The kids were great.”

Brilhante, 31, was an assistant coach for six seasons at Decatur High School — his alma mater — before taking the Beamer job in 2008-09. He took the Titans to their first state tournament that season and this year finished just one game short of the tournament, falling in a loser-out, winner-to-state game against Kentwood, which went on to win the title. His two-year record was 31-21, including 17-8 this past season.

Brilhante, a para-educator at Beamer, said there were multiple reasons for his resignation.

“There’s a lot of things,” he said, declining to elaborate. “I can’t pin-point one thing.”

Beamer athletic director Jerry Peterson sent out a brief statement: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Coach Brilhante for his two years of service as our head coach.”

Brilhante said he “definitely” plans to continue his coaching career, eventually at the collegiate level.

“That’s my ultimate goal and always has been,” he said.
