The Guerin Catholic Athletic Department is excited to announce the hiring of Bobby Allen as Varsity Boys Basketball Coach. Allen also joins the staff at Guerin Catholic as an English teacher.
Allen most recently served as an assistant coach at Cathedral High School in Indianapolis, and was head coach at Knightstown for six seasons. During his tenure at Knightstown, Coach Allen was twice recognized as Henry County Coach of the Year, Mid-Hoosier Conference Coach of the Year and also served as head coach of the Hoosier Reunion All-Star Classic. Allen has also coached at Lawrence Central and Chatard High School.
“We are very blessed to have an educator and coach who comes to us with a wealth of basketball knowledge and experience, but more importantly understands the purpose of education based athletics deeply rooted in the Catholic Faith,” said Matt Lane, Director of Athletics.
“I am truly blessed and excited for the opportunity to be the head boys basketball coach at Guerin Catholic High School,” said Allen. “Coaching and teaching have been my true passions for fifteen years. Becoming a head basketball coach at a school where I can create lifelong relationships and develop student athletes based on Catholic values is my professional goal, and I look forward to having a positive impact on the players, school, and entire community.”
Bobby and Mollie, along with their sons Benson (7) and Everett (4), reside in Fishers. In his spare time, he enjoys coaching both of his boys in basketball, baseball and golf, as well as taking his family to sporting events at Indiana University to cheer on the Hoosiers. After being raised through St.Pius X and Cathedral High School, they understand the importance of instilling the values of Christ and raising their children in a positive church setting. Mollie, Benson, and Everett are as excited as I am to be a part of the Guerin Catholic family and to continue our faith journey with this community.
