Quincy named Brad Bergman as its new girls' basketball coach on Monday night after the hiring gained unanimous approval from the school board. Bergman replaces Demond Dade, who resigned in April after a two-year tenure.

Bergman spent the last two seasons as the girls' basketball coach at Liberty, located 10 miles east of Quincy. During that stint, he compiled a 27-28 record.

The Blue Devils are coming off an 0-26 campaign and have lost 12 consecutive Western Big 6 Conference games.
