St John the Baptist Announces New Girls Varsity Basketball Coach

St. John the Baptist DHS has announced the hiring of Bruce Haller as the new Girls Varsity Basketball Coach. Haller, the 2013 Newsday-MSG Varsity Suffolk County Coach of the Year has spent the last 5 years coaching the Girls Varsity at Commack High School.

Coach Haller led Commack to a 16-3 record last year and a semifinal berth in the county Class AA playoffs where their season ended in overtime to top seed North Babylon.  In a season highlighted by handing eventual Long Island AA Champion Sachem East their only public school defeat, Commack’s trademark team defense held 17 of 19 opponents to under 35% shooting from the field.

Haller is the Head Coach of the Long Island Girls Scholastic Empire State Games team. In 2010 the Long Island Girls won a medal for the first time in 6 years. Prior to coaching girls, Haller was a boys high school basketball coach at Valley Stream North in Nassau County for 11 years. While at VSN  he also coached football and baseball.

Coach Haller is an attorney and a tenured professor at Dowling College. He has been the Chair of the Department of Management and Leadership for the past 23 years. His teaching responsibilities include Employment Law, Labor Law and Business Law. He is also the NCAA Faculty Representative and is currently leading the search for a new Head Women’s Basketball Coach.
