Clearwater Central Catholic hired Steve Willis as its boys basketball coach.

This is Willis' second stint as Marauders coach. He guided the program from 2003-05 before becoming a coach at St. Paul's (K-8) in Clearwater the past four seasons. Willis replaces James Margarella, who left in March after three seasons to spend more time with his family.

Initially, CCC had pursued St. Petersburg coach Chris Blackwell, but he decided to stay with the Green Devils. Marauders athletic director Keith Galley said the school never officially posted the position but four other head coaches from Pinellas and Hillsborough County had inquired about the opening.

Willis, who will continue to teach at St. Paul's, inherits a CCC team that made the playoffs last season for the first time at the school since 2001.
