After a one-year hiatus, Kevin Wolfe is back as head boys basketball coach at St. Francis de Sales.

The Pioneers had three different coaches this past season in Bob Oderwald, Anthony Porche and former Bulls draft pick Jeff Sanders. Wolfe, who said he was fired after the 2012-13 season by then-athletic director Greg Modzelewski, said he is happy to be back on South Ewing Avenue.

"I am glad to be back and I think we can be successful right away because we are in Class 1A," Wolfe said. "I think we will win some games in the Catholic League as we return the league's leading scorer in Tyler Streeter.

"It is tough rebuilding the ties, but I had a lot of alumni contact me and congratulate me after they found out I got the job."

Rex Martin, former Mount Carmel freshman coach, will be his assistant.

Wolfe's 2011-12 Pioneers team had the program's first winning record in over a decade. His 2012-13 team was 7-21.

"We have enough talent here and a strong base of players," said Wolfe, a 1981 Mount Carmel grad. "Coach Martin and I will work closely together to ensure our students are ready to play and to give their best each and every day." -- Mike Nieto
