Loyola selects Hibbs to coach boys basketball

High Schools

April 29, 2004|By Pat O'Malley

Mike Hibbs, who coached Bullis Prep in Potomac for the past 12 seasons, has been named basketball coach at Loyola High. Hibbs was chosen from nearly 40 candidates to succeed Steve Baker and will teach English at the Towson school.

Baker stepped down after one season (7-24), after longtime Loyola coach Jerry Savage resigned after the 2002-03 season with 607 victories in 35 years.

"We're very excited about our selection," said the Dons' Mike Keeney, who is completing his first year as the athletic director at his alma mater. "Mike is a wonderful addition to our faculty and coaching staff."

Hibbs is a University of Maryland graduate who was also a former player and assistant under Morgan Wootten at DeMatha. He led Bullis to six Interstate Athletic Conference (IAC) championships and a record of 182-73. He was named IAC Coach of the Year six times.
