Stevenson alum John Taylor, who was varsity assistant the past four seasons, has been named the new head coach at Notre Dame High School in Green Bay, Wisconsin
, where he played collegiately at St. Norbert. He will take over a program that finished 8-15 last season.
During his four seasons on the varsity bench, Stevenson won consecutive state trophies in 2013, 2014 and 2015. As a player for SHS, Taylor was an all-North Suburban Conference player his junior and senior seasons, and in 2007 led the Patriots to the IHSA Final Four. He set the school’s single-season 3-point percentage record (47%), which was broken by Matt Johnson in 2014 (55%), and still holds the single-game steal record with 8.
At St. Norbert, Taylor was a two-time captain and all-conference selection. His team was the first St. Norbert squad to win back-to-back regular and tournament conference championships in 2010 and 2011. His teams also qualified for the NCAA Division III tournament during those seasons. Taylor tied the school record for 3-pointers in a game with 7, and is in the program's top five in career assists.
