Erik Stuart
 
Coach Stuart began Coaching at Los Altos High School July 2020. He has been coaching for 3 years. He grew up in a "basketball family", with his father and grandfather having played (the latter almost 100 years ago, when there was still a jump ball at center court after every basket!). After finishing college and earning a Ph.D. in economics at Stanford, he spent nearly two decades in the corporate world, primarily doing strategy in the technology and financial services sectors - but he has always known he wanted to be a coach eventually.

In 2017, he reduced his corporate work schedule to 1-2 days a week, and shortly thereafter, He joined the Foothill College basketball program as an assistant, first with the women's team and then with the men's team. After three seasons of learning coaching skills under two excellent head coaches, he joined LAHS as the head coach for girls basketball in the summer of 2020.
 
"I love working with and teaching young people, and I love basketball. I was very fortunate to have had wonderful coaches and mentors when I played sports growing up, and I want to help give our players enjoyable and memorable experiences, as well as play a role in guiding and mentoring them as they grow into adults. More specifically, I want to share what I can with regard to skills and knowledge around the marvelous sport of basketball, which has been a lifelong passion and source of joy for me."
