St. Francis de Sales will name former Bulls first-round draft pick Jeff Sanders as its director of boys basketball operations, a source close to the school told the Times.

There will be a news conference at 3 p.m. Tuesday at the school announcing Sanders to the position. A boys coach will be announced later. Sanders was selected by the Bulls 20th overall in the 1989 NBA draft. He played four seasons in the NBA with the Bulls, Charlotte Hornets and Atlanta Hawks, appearing in 55 games.

The school will also announce former Notre Dame offensive lineman Tom Gullickson as its director football operations and John Terry as head football coach.

Gullickson played for Ara Parseghian and Dan Devine at Notre Dame. He was the head coach at Peoria Notre Dame, guiding the Fighting Irish to their first winning season since 2001. Recently, he was a special teams coach with St. Xavier University in 2011. The Cougars won the NAIA national championship. He is the older brother of former major league pitcher Scott Gullickson. Both are Joliet Catholic grads.

Terry was an assistant as SFDS last year under Martin Quiroga, who was not retained. The boys basketball coach position was held by Kevin Wolfe, who stepped down after the season.

Ken Mattini will be named director of girls basketball operations and head coach. He succeeds Terrence Streater, who guided the Pioneers to three straight Class 2A regional titles. Streater left for a similar position at Eisenhower.

Mattini guided Elgin St. Edwards to the 1985 Class A girls state basketball title and a runner-up finish in 1988. He has coached at several schools. He recently was an assistant girls basketball coach at Kenosha (Wis.) St. Joseph's.
