TOLEDO, Ohio — Whitmer has a new boys basketball coach and he’s a very familiar to northwest Ohio basketball fans. 

Anthony Stacey will be leaving his spot as an assistant coach at BGSU to return to coaching high school basketball. The hiring is still awaiting Washington Local School Board approval.

Stacey is still the all-time leading scorer in Bowling Green State University history. He spent five years on Michael Huger’s staff with the Falcons. Stacey was inducted into the BGSU Hall of Fame in 2011. 

During his playing career at BG, he was named MAC Player of the Year as a senior during the 1999-2000 season. That year, he averaged 16.8 ppg and 6.0 rpg.

This isn’t Stacey’s first venture into coaching high school basketball. He coached Medina High School before joining Huger at Bowling Green. Stacey replaced Ryan Brown who left Whitmer after a very successful run as head coach of the Panthers.
