His teaching career began in Killarney where he coached the junior high, junior varsity and varsity boys’ teams for five years. In 1979, he accepted the challenge of rebuilding the BU Bobcats women’s program and, over 5 years, he became the winningest women’s coach in school history.

He then moved to Crocus Plains High School and coached the Plainsmen to their first MHSAA ‘AAAA’ Final Four.
