Bedford turns to one of its own for boys basketball coaching hire

TEMPERANCE (WTVG) - Bedford has a new boys basketball coach, and it's someone who knows the program very well. Jordan Bollin takes over after being the named the MVP of the 2005-06 team.

"I'm sure it will be a nostalgic feeling," said Bollin.

He returns to Bedford with five years of experience as the head coach at Dundee. In that span the Vikings were 68-41 with three appearances in the last four district championships. The run also included four consecutive winning seasons.

"Right now I'm assembling a staff, trying to get some really good people in the program," Bollin said. "I don't think one single varsity coach makes a program. I think it's having really good people all the way through that gives these kids a great experience."

And it was a very 2020-style hire. Bollin and the school completed the hiring process without meeting in person -- it was all done over the phone.
