Charlie Szabo '98 Named Men's Basketball Head Coach

We welcome Charlie Szabo ‘98 as the next head coach for the Eagles men’s basketball team. Szabo played basketball for the Eagles during his time at the high school and has served in various roles with the men’s basketball team for 15 seasons. His most recent role was the head coach for the junior varsity men’s basketball team and the associate head varsity coach.

“I grew up loving Eagle basketball and to lead this program is a dream come true,” Szabo said. “To lead the long-storied tradition of this basketball program is a goal I’ve worked hard for and a responsibility I take very seriously.”

“I am thankful for our search committee and their time and dedication during our search process,” CJ athletic director Jeremy Greenleaf said. “The committee overwhelmingly agreed that Charlie’s passion for the program, understanding of the Catholic mission and loyalty made him the best fit to lead the men’s basketball team.”

Szabo was named the District 15 Division II Assistant Coach of the Year in 2010 and was inducted into the CJ Athletic Hall of Fame in 2011.

Szabo replaces Joe Staley ‘72, who announced his retirement in February after serving more than 30 years as the Eagles men’s basketball head coach.
