    March 29, 2012 1 comments

    The Brownsburg Community School Board of Trustees met in a specially called meeting Wednesday morning to approve Ronald Nored as the varsity boys’ basketball coach.

    Nored, standout point guard for the Butler Bulldogs, will join the coaching staff of Brownsburg High School after his graduation in May. The education major and two-time Horizon League Academic All-American came to the attention of the Brownsburg community as a teammate of hometown hero Gordon Hayward during Butler’s back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Final Four.

    BHS Athletic Director Greg Hill stated, “Of course, we were invested in Hayward, but what made many of us fall in love with the Butler program is the character demonstrated by the team and Coach Stevens through their culture described as the Butler Way. Ronald Nored exemplifies that culture.”

    It is a culture that Brownsburg looks forward to Nored bringing to the court and to the classroom. According to BHS Principal Bret Daghe, Nored will become one of four graduation coaches at Brownsburg High School. “His role will fit perfectly with his skill set and his investment in education,” said Daghe. “As an academic coach, he will provide assistance to high school students, individually and in groups, planning, implementing, and tracking individual high school graduation plans; identifying and resolving barriers to graduation; and facilitating career choices and planning.”

    Butler Coach Brad Stevens and former teammate Gordon Hayward, now with the Utah Jazz, were in agreement on the selection of Nored as head basketball coach, “I couldn’t be more excited for the Brownsburg community and for Ronald,” said Stevens. “He’s been an absolute joy to coach, and has greatly impacted all of us here at Butler University.  He’s very intelligent and has a high level of passion for the game.  Brownsburg is getting a wonderful person, teacher and coach.”

    Hayward said he believes that his alma mater has “acquired such an extraordinary guy to be their new head basketball coach”, and he “cannot wait to see Ron’s success in his new job!”

    Nored will be finishing up his Butler degree in education in a few weeks but he is excited to immediately begin meeting and working with his new Bulldog basketball family.

    Nored stated, I am thankful for being given the opportunity to be the head basketball coach at Brownsburg. The prestige of the community, school, and athletics was the selling point for me. We are in a one of the toughest conferences and sectionals in the state and our goal will be to be competitive in both.”
