Big news in Iron Range boys basketball. This week, Chisholm coach Bob McDonald announced he would retire after this upcoming season.

McDonald holds the record for most coaching wins in Minnesota history and has the most wins of any active coach in the United States. He’s also known here on northern Minnesota’s Iron Range as one of the great teachers and advisers to youth of the last 50 years. Tough, no nonsense — sure — but also a kind and patient man who worked with kids on being good men, not just good basketball players.

This will be the 59th year coaching, and 52nd at the helm of the Bluestreaks for Chisholm coach Bob McDonald. You can bet the boys will give their all for coach’s last season.
