Kurtis Cowan, Head Coach: Coach K returns for year number seven as Men’s Varsity Basketball Coach. His goal is to stress the importance of kindness, respect, diligence, and perseverance. As these traits are portrayed on the basketball court, he hopes that the students do not just become good athletes, but that they become men. If these traits can be characterized in the midst of a competitive atmosphere, they will carry over into real life. Coach K is excited about the new season and looks forward to working with each player. Off the court, Dr. Cowan practices as a Physical Therapist in the Kansas City area.
Tanner Finnegan, Assistant Coach: Coach Finnegan returns as assistant coach for his third seasion, as well as coaching the MS Boys team. He is a Midland graduate (class of 2014), a thirteen-year senior, and played Mustang basketball since sixth grade. (think he doesn't bleed Midland red?) Tanner is a senior at Avila University School of Business. His goal is to help our varsity guys be as successful as they can be while learning as much as he can from one of his role models, Coach K.
