Steve Green named as Interim Head Coach of Boys Basketball
Princeton City Schools named Steve Green as interim head coach for the boys varsity basketball team. Green, who has been a member of the team’s coaching staff for the past 20 years and most recently served as assistant varsity coach, will assume the role of varsity head coach immediately.
“The selection of Steve Green as interim coach is what is best for our student-athletes and what is best for Princeton at this time,” said Ron Bollmer, Princeton High School principal. “He knows the students, knows the program, and knows what it means to make a Viking difference.”
Green, who is also a mathematics teacher at Princeton Community Middle School, hopes to continue the tradition of excellence that the boys basketball team displays.
“It’s an honor to be involved with the student-athletes who have a strong work ethic, dedication, and passion for the game of basketball,” said Green. “We are committed to providing our student-athletes with skills that will carry over into lifelong success beyond the court.”
Steven Wright, who served the district for two years as head coach, gave his resignation effective as of September 25, 2019, to pursue an opportunity at Cleveland State University. For the two years under his direction, Wright guided the Vikings to a 39-13 overall record.
“We wish Coach Steve Wright the best of luck in his new endeavors and thank him for his service to our student-athletes and our community,” said Joe Roberts, district athletic director. “It was critical for us to work quickly through this transition so we can ensure that our Vikings have the best leadership possible to help them progress both on and off the court.”
The Vikings open the 2019-20 season on Friday, November 29 hosting the Bombers of St. Xavier High School at 7:30 p.m.
