John Bonner, interim head coach for the women’s basketball team, is living out his passions through his newly assigned position.
“I got into coaching because of my desire to be around the game of basketball,” said Bonner. “I have been involved with the game all of my life.”
Bonner got his start at coaching in 2004 at Hamilton Middle School. He then went on to work as a graduate assistant for Fresno State for three years, and ended up at Fresno Pacific as a volunteer, where he would eventually work his way up to full-time assistant.
He was hired at CSUDH in September as an assistant coach by Janell Jones, who previously held the position before going to work for University of San Francisco.
“Basketball has always been an escape for me and it has afforded me the opportunity to embrace my passion daily,” Bonner said. “I have never shied away from being a leader so it was a natural transition for me to become a coach. It also allows me to mentor, which is another passion of mine.”
The women’s basketball team lost seven seniors last year, which means there will be a lot of new faces joining Bonner on the court.
Bonner understands that there is always a transition period when a team gains a new coach, but he hopes it leads into new opportunities and entirely new experience for the Toros.
Bonner wants to create an environment for his team, to not only be great athletes but great role models for the community— and also a great students.
“You can definitely expect to see players with a lot of passion, toughness, and competitive spirit,” Bonner said. “These young ladies are winners and we hope to see them bring their best every day.”
