Former Gladiator Tyler Schell taking over varsity girls basketball program

Schell started his coaching career in Utah before returning home to help with several basketball teams in Traverse City the past several years.

TRAVERSE CITY -- Tyler Schell graduated from Traverse City St. Francis back in 2004 with dreams of one day coaching varsity sports. Little did he know his first varsity gig would be at his alma mater.

Earlier this week Schell was named head coach of the varsity girls basketball program, taking over for Keith Haske who stepped down back in April.

He has coached basketball in a variety of settings and levels, and also has experience coaching football in Traverse City and Utah.

We caught up with Schell in our latest Jimmy John's Sports Corner to get his thoughts on returning home and filling in for a legend.
