GALLATIN, TN—Interim Head Men’s Basketball Coach, Donnie Stevanus, announced his resignation March 23. Stevanus, a full-time teacher in the Metro Nashville Public School System, had agreed to coach the men’s Flames basketball team on an interim basis until the new campus was built in Gallatin.
In Stevanus’s two years at the helm, he was instrumental in moving the program forward both on and off the court. Not only did this year’s Flames squad have the highest winning percentage for a Flames team (16-14) since 2006, but he had his teams attend and participate in numerous churches while on road trips over his time at Welch College.
“Don has done an amazing job,” said Gary Turner, Athletic Director. “He came in and got us through a critical period of transition in Welch College’s history. He gave the Flames the stability needed to go forward. He was truly a blessing to our campus.”
