Crusaders place coach on administrative leave


Ray Hamill/ – St. Bernard’s head coach Steve Thrap has been placed on administrative leave.

By Ray Hamill — St. Bernard’s has placed boys basketball head coach Steve Thrap and his staff on administrative leave for the immediate future, the school announced on Thursday.

Because it is a personnel matter, the school was unable to comment further at this stage.

St. Bernard’s Athletic Director Ryan Bisio will take over head coaching duties for Friday night’s game at Hoopa Valley.

The school was unable to say who would be coaching the team during next week’s Dick Niclai Memorial Tournament and beyond.

Thrap has been in charge of the program since 2007, and led the program to four consecutive championships over the past four season.
