Homewood-Flossmoor didn't have to look far to name its new boys basketball coach.

Sophomore coach Marc Condotti will succeed Jim McLaughlin, who resigned on May 22 for family reasons. McLaughlin was 201-62 in nine seasons at H-F. Last year the Vikings were 17-12, falling to Marian Catholic in the Class 4A Thornton Sectional final.

Condotti was the sophomore coach for seven years and served one year as assistant sophomore coach and three seasons as a freshman coach. He said having the continuity and having coached the current varsity players at the lower levels is a plus.

"We've had success for the seniors and juniors who were part of last year; they know they put in a lot of hard work to get where they did," Condotti said. "We are not going to change what has worked. We have a good group of kids. It is great to be a head coach, but also special to be the head coach at Homewood-Flossmoor."

Homewood-Flossmoor athletic director Dan Vosnos said in a news release that Condotti has the passion for the game.

"Having already been on staff for 11 years, Marc understands our student-athletes and has already built strong relationships with many of them," Vosnos said. "I have no doubt that he will lead with a high level of integrity – while at the same time – having the desire to be the very best."​

Condotti, in the same release, praised McLaughlin and said he enjoyed working with him for 11 years.

"Nobody works harder than Jim, on the floor or in the video room,"  Condotti said. "He had that ability to translate to the kids what he wanted to do to the kids and having them get it done.

"Of course, with Jim still in the building, if I need help, I won't hesitate to call on him."

Condotti's father, Roy Condotti, was the team's coach from 1995-2005. Marc said his dad would remain on the staff.

"We have a great tradition here from Don Laketa, my dad and Mac," Marc Condott said. "It is not just on the floor but with our visibility in the community.

"We want to keep that going."
