Terry
Brunel
Assistant Coach

Terry began playing in the Canterbury Basketball Association in 1981 and progressed through various age group teams representing the province at U16, U18, U20, U23. He made the Rams team in 1987 and went on to represent the Rams through to 1991. During that period he was a member of the back to back championship winning Rams teams of 1989 and 1990 playing under Head Coach Keith Mair and Assistant Coach Bert Knops. Following his playing days with the Rams Terry became the Canterbury Basketball Development Manager building programmes for the association. He also became a part time TV commentator alongside, firstly John Watson and then the legend Bob Mantei, calling Rams games for CTV and CHTV. Terry became the administrator for the Rams team in 2006 when the CBA took over the running of the team for a three year period. During this time he was also the Assistant Coach to American Chris Sparks (2006,2007) and Bert Knops (2008). Terry played a part in convincing current Rams owner Andrew Harrison to restart the team in 2014 so that young local talented players had a flagship team to aspire to. Most recently he was back in the commentary seat alongside James Lissaman calling the games for the live streaming coverage. Terry has been appointed Rams Assistant Coach for 2019 under Head Coach Mick Downer and alongside Assistant Piet Van Hasselt. “It’s a real privilege to be back on the side lines and I’m looking forward to being a part of a Canterbury Rams team that plays the right way with energy and passion”.
