Former Crimson Tide
star as been an assistant
for the last five years
Everett High School didn’t need to look any further than its bench to nd its next boys basketball coach, tapping assis- tant coach and former Crimson Tide standout Stanley Cham- blain to replace John DiBiaso.
Flanked by his wife, Marjani, and his mother, Margarette, and surrounded by members of the EHS athletic department, Chamblain thanked the administration for “allowing me to take over a prestigious program” and vowed to “give my 110 percent.” In making the announcement, Principal Erick Naumann quoted legendary UCLA head coach John Wooden in pointing out that Chamblain has the ability to “give correction without causing resentment.”
Chamblain played for EHS from 2000-2003 (serving as captain as a senior) before playing at Hesser College and Keene State in New Hampshire. He nished his undergraduate work at Lesley University be- fore receiving a master’s degree from Cambridge College. He is a guidance counselor at EHS and has been a Crimson Tide assistant for the past FIve years.
DiBiaso, who has coached Everett’s football and boys basketball teams for more than two decades, is retiring from the Everett Public Schools in June. In football coach Theluxon Pierre and Chamblain, EHS has hired two men who played for, and coached under, the legendary DiBiaso.
Chamblain takes over a team that last year won the Northeastern Conference in its inaugural season in the league and captured the Div. 1 North Final before falling to Mansfield in the Div. 1 State Semi nals in the TD Garden.
“I have big shoes to fill, but I’m confident that with [Dibiaso’s] teachings over the 9-plus years I’ve learned from him, that I’ll be able to integrate his philosophy into mine,” he said.
He continued, saying “I feel con dent that [Dibiaso] had prepared me well, the schemes, X’s and O’s, the way to handle everyone on the team to be able to coach here. I’m humbled.”
