Basketball - Boys

Josh Izzo

Coach Josh Izzo began his coaching career in 2010 as an assistant varsity coach at Joliet Catholic Academy when his brother, Jeremy Izzo, suddenly passed away due to complications with Marfan Syndrome. The following year, Coach Izzo was hired by coaching legend Joe Gura and became the head sophomore and head freshman coach over the next three years. In 2014, he joined his alma mater's staff under Illinois Hall of Fame coach John Bonk at Nazareth Academy, where he moved up the ranks from head freshman coach to eventually assistant varsity coach through 2018. Coach Izzo’s tenacity and love of the game stems from the same commitment exhibited by his brother, who worked under Coach Bill Self and Bruce Weber at University of Illinois. He is motivated to build Guerin Prep basketball into a championship contender over the next few seasons.
