Bethany's new boys basketball coach knows what it takes to win a state championship with the Bronchos.
He did it as a player in 2001. Now, Aaron Toler will try to do it as the team's coach. He was recently promoted after serving as Phil Brown's assistant.
Brown retired from coaching to focus in his duties as athletic director and teacher at Bethany.
Toler is the brother of Oklahoma Christian coach Trent Toler.
In other coaching moves, Bethany hired Harrah's Grant Ledbetter, formerly a player at Putnam City West and Southern Nazarene, as its new baseball coach.
And the softball team promoted Jordan Wisniewski from assistant to head coach. Bethany also hopes to fill its vacant girls basketball coaching position by the end of the week.
