The Bonner Springs athletic department did not go too far in finding their new boys basketball head coach.
Dan Streit, the lead assistant head coach for former Braves head coach Andy Price, has been named the new coach.
Streit was on Price's staff the past two years, along with coaching on the Bonner Springs staff from 2000 to the end of Price's first coaching stint at the school.
Streit brings experience on the bench as well.
He was the head coach at Bennington High School, where he finished with a 44-21 record.
He also coaches at Clark Middle School, where he's the head football coach.
“Some people are writing us off due to the large senior class we graduated this past season, but I wouldn't be so quick to agree," Streit said in a statement. "We return starter Jordan Jackson, along with center Tyler Howell and some other pieces. Add in a transfer or two and we will surprise a lot of teams this year."
Bonner Springs has won over 30 games as a varsity program the past two years.
