Nored settling in as Bulldog

Two-time NCAA Division-I national champion runner up,

Three-time Horizon League regular season champion,

First two-time Defensive Player of the Year in Horizon League history,

Averaged 7.8 points, 5.2 assists, 1.8 steals per game senior year,

and 2012 Butler grad with degree in elementary education.

Ronald Nored’s resume does not read like typical high school head basketball coaching candidates.

His experience playing for the Butler Bulldogs prepared Nored to take the reins of the Brownsburg high school boys’ basketball program.

“I was coaching when I was playing,” Nored said. “Through scouting reports, watching a lot of film, understanding how other teams did things, and putting our team in position while I was on the floor to be successful against that. So I coached for four years before I ever came here.”

A year ago, the Homewood, Ala., native was starting the rigorous college basketball season for Butler. Now, he is preparing his Bulldogs for the 2012 season with a tough schedule and Hoosier Crossroads Conference looming.

Quite a difference a year makes for the 22-year-old.

“It’s hit me in the face like a bunch of bricks,” he said. “I’m so used to gearing up, being in practice right now, and getting after it. I just worked out for the first time in over five months two days ago. I’m out of shape, I’m eating a lot, spending a lot of time in the office but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I like doing this a lot more than I like playing. And I love playing basketball.”

Nored assembled an experienced coaching staff with each bringing their own specialties. Gordon Hayward Sr., Bronson Lickliter (head coach at Randolph Southern the past two seasons) and 36-year Marian University coach and recent retiree John Grimes are each part of the coaching staff.
