“I couldn’t be more excited to be named the Boys Basketball Head Coach at Springboro High School,” Kostoff said in a release. “I want to make all past, present and future Springboro Panthers proud of our young men and our program. When I first got into coaching at the high school level, it was my goal to eventually take over a basketball program that has great students, administration and families.”

Kostoff repalces Kyle Youker, who stepped down earlier this month after three seasons . The Panthers finished 13-12 this season, advancing to the program's first Division I district final in seven years before falling 65-25 to two-time defending state champion Moeller .

La Salle is 133-45 overall the last seven seasons. The Lancers led the GCL South in total defense the last two seasons, limiting its opponents to less than 40 points per game.
