Bill Lewit

After three years on the job, Bill Lewit is departing John Curtis Christian to return to college coaching.

Lewit has been hired as an assistant coach at Oral Roberts by head coach Russell Springmann.

“The Curtis family made me feel like one of their own,” Lewit said. “This school has an inordinate amount of spiritual, academic, athletic, student body spirit which made my decision that much harder. I’m thankful for the administration, faculty, staff, students, assistant coaches and, of course, my players for making my experience rewarding and for leaving an indelible mark on me.”

Lewit guided the Patriots to the Division I state championship game in the 2021-22 season and posted an overall record of 61-30.

Lewit won a NJCAA Division II national title as head coach at Cecil College in 2006 and was inducted into the Cecil College Hall of Fame in 2020. He also served as an assistant at Tennessee-Martin, Northwestern State and the University of New Orleans.

Lewit was a two-sport letterman at Salisbury University in football and basketball.

“It was a great opportunity for him at a high level and is financially rewarding,” John Curtis headmaster J.T. Curtis said. “We are disappointed to lose him but certainly understand it. He is an excellent coach and he will do very well. We enjoyed the years we had with him. We have already had several inquiries about the job. We have some very good candidates and we will not take very long to name a replacement, perhaps only a week or so.”
