“We at Bosco are excited to bring in a leader for the basketball program that possesses a demonstrated ability to be successful on the court as well as a notable dedication to the formation and development of his players as persons. These qualities are consistent with St. John Bosco’s Salesian Mission, and make Coach Dunn an exciting fit for our school,” said Principal Casey Yeazel.
