Long-time Mount St. Jospeh basketball assistant Doug Nicholas has been named the new head coach Boys’ Latin, replacing Cliff Rees who stepped down earlier this year.

Nicholas will be in his second stint at BL, where he has been on the faculty as a physical education instructor for the last 20 years. He was the Lakers’ varsity head coach from 2004-2007 before joining Pat Clatchey’s staff at St. Joe, where he was apart of numerous MIAA and BLC championship squads.
