BISHOP'S SLONAKER TO COACH PLANT BOYS BASKETBALL

After only one season at Bishop McLaughlin, boys basketball coach Michael Slonaker is leaving to take the same job at Plant. Slonaker, who has collegiate coaching experience and is the son of a former college coach, replaces Mike Phillips. The program's all-time winningest coach, Phillips was dismissed after acknowledging he provided housing information to the mother of a prospective Plant student-athlete.

A 2007 Mercer University graduate, Slonaker, 27, inherited a Bishop McLaughlin program that won once in the 2009-10 season and led it to a 10-12 mark this past winter.
