Chandler Seton Catholic has filled its head football coaching position by hiring a man with more than three decades of experience at the high school level.
The Sentinels picked Rex Bowser, who coached in Indiana for 33 years, 29 as a head coach, from a pool of more than 20 applicants. He replaces Rodger Schenks, who resigned in June after one year to take a job at Mesa Red Mountain.
Bowser, 58, moved to Arizona three years ago to be closer to his children and grandchildren and had been coaching a semi-pro team.
His desire, though, was always to return to preps.
“I got out of it for a little bit, but I missed it too badly,” Bowser said. “It was something I really needed to get back to doing.”
