I just wanted to let everyone know that I have resigned as head coach at Bonnabel High School. I truly love those kids,…

In four seasons in charge of the Bruins, Bonnaffons posted a 12-21 record, including 3-4 this past season.

Bonnaffons succeeded Daryl Thomas, who spent just one year as the head coach of the Bruins after current John Ehret coach Reggie Rogers served as Bonnabel head coach for six seasons.

Previously the head coach at Pope John Paul II where he went 6-15 in two seasons, Bonnafons also coached at Riverdale, where he went 9-12 in a pair of seasons.

Bonnaffons also served as an assistant coach at Helen Cox, West Jefferson, Desire Street Academy, Redemptorist and Carroll.

A Holy Cross graduate, Bonnaffons played collegiately at Nicholls State.

The choice is strictly that of Bonnaffons.

“I’ve got three children in four different sports and being a head coach is difficult,” Bonnaffons said. “I certainly intend to coach again. Having children who are 8, 9 and 10 makes it difficult to be a head coach. I love Bonnabel, I love the kids and the job is better now than when I got there. I need to let my wife do her thing I can take care of the kids and spend quality time with them.”
