Posted 05/30/2018 02:42PM

Montini Catholic is proud to announce that Robert Lozano has been selected as the new Head Coach of the Montini Catholic Boys Varsity Basketball Team. Lozano succeeds the late Daryl Thomas who passed away this past March. Thomas coached the Bronco's through three successful seasons.

A graduate of Morton East High School, Lozano played four years of basketball before moving on to continue his education at Triton Junior College. He started coaching at the Berwyn Recreation Department in 2002 as a volunteer. From there he moved into the coaching role for Morton High School's feeder program from 2007 to 2013, coaching both boys and girls at all levels. At Morton, Lozano compiled a winning record on the AAU circuit locally and nationally, including for the 2009 Proviso West Holiday Tournament winning team.

Lozano took advantage of the opportunity to coach for the successful Morton basketball program during the 2012-2013 season as the Freshmen A coach and assistant at the varsity level. He finished with an overall record of 36-19 on the freshmen level. He then joined the staff at the Chicago Bulls Youth Academy in 2012, coaching all grade levels, both boys and girls at a high level of AAU competitive basketball.

He currently works with many communities instructing in all fundamentals of basketball - passing, rebounding, dribbling and shooting and is passionate about conducting drills designed to help in improving an athlete's skills, stamina and techniques.

Lozano has been a proud contributor to Montini's basketball program as Head Sophomore Coach as well as Assistant Coach on the varsity level, beginning in 2015 under the leadership of Coach Thomas. At Montini, Lozano lead the sophomore team to a record of 43-33 overall and is looking forward to continuing the growth and success of the program for years to come.

"We are very happy to have Bob continue the work of Coach Thomas at Montini Catholic," said President Jim Segredo. "Our community suffered a devastating loss with the death of our dear friend, Daryl, but we are focusing on the future and know that our team will be in good hands under Lozano's leadership."
