Morissette named boys basketball coach at St. Thomas Aquinas

Dover – A year after taking over as athletic director at St. Thomas Aquinas High School, Dave Morissette will add another title to his resume.

Morissette will take over as head coach of the school’s boys’ basketball team, replacing Sean Murphy who has captained the Saints for the past seven seasons. Murphy resigned last month due to his work.

Although Morissette appreciated Murphy’s contribution and what he meant for the basketball program, Morissette thought it would be an ideal opportunity for him to get back into the game.

“Sean has done a really good job for us this year and I’ve been really looking forward to having him back,” Morissette said. “When he decided he couldn’t (the coach) anymore, I just thought about it. I miss the gym and love working with the kids. I had the opportunity, and I work with an amazing staff. They were all so supportive and energetic. I decided to do it.”
