Bonis returning to Brother Martin

Mark Bonis has had a change of heart and is returning to Brother Martin as head football coach, the school announced Monday.

Bonis had accepted the director of player personnel position at the University of Memphis but had second thoughts rather quickly.

"After a few days in Memphis, I realized that I missed my players, my coaches and my entire Brother Martin family," said Bonis. "I am extremely grateful to Principal Greg Rando, Athletic Director Scott Williams and the entire school leadership for allowing me the opportunity to return as the head coach of the Crusaders. Brother Martin is home for me."

The Crusaders have gone 18-6 the last two seasons. They reached the Division I semi-finals in 2014.
