Just one week after his playing career ended, Butler senior Ronald Nored moved on to the next chapter of his life. The former Bulldog point guard has been hired as head boy's basketball coach at Brownsburg High School.
Nored, a native of Homewood, Ala., was known during his standout Butler career for his defense and leadership. He was Butler's point guard for 109 victories and two appearances in the national championship game. As a senior, Nored was named a CoSIDA Academic All-American and Horizon League Defensive Player of the Year.
"I couldn't be more excited for the Brownsburg community and for Ronald," head coach Brad Stevens said in a news release. "He's been an absolute joy to coach, and has greatly impacted all of us here at Butler University. He's very intelligent and has a high level of passion for the game."
Brownsburg High School, located just west of Indianapolis, was the high school of former Bulldog star and current Utah Jazz player Gordon Hayward. Hayward led BHS to a state title in boy's basketball in 2008.
Nored, who will graduate from Butler this May with a degree in elementary education, will also work as a graduation coach at the high school.
"His role will fit perfectly with his skill set and his investment in education," Brownsburg principal Bret Daghe said in a news release. "As an academic coach, he will provide assistance to high school students, individually and in groups, planning, implementing and tracking individual high school graduation plans; identifying and resolving barriers to graduation; and facilitating career choices and planning."
