El Paso, TX — Socorro High School needed a boys basketball varsity head coach, and they didn't have to look far... hiring Tim McNally, who spent the last four years as the JV coach with the Bulldogs. McNally led Coronado before coming to Socorro, but has felt a bond in the lower valley with his players the last four years.
"It just stems from the very first day I walked in here, you know they welcomed me with open arms, and I was really proud of that. Happy and still emotional about it... It's great to have family, whether it's your own family or an extended family, like this community is, and there's something special about being here," said McNally.
"I have enjoyed it very much, and this is a great opportunity. We have five seniors back for this coming season, and we have high expectations... we want to make the playoffs, and possibly win a district title. I don't think that's out of the realm of possibility."
McNally takes over for Tom Gamboa, who recently earned his PHD and will teach in Dubai.
