BBB: McGraw Returns to WAT East

Updated: Wednesday, August 6 2014, 04:15 PM CDT
WATERLOO, Iowa -- Steve McGraw has been chosen as the new head boys’ basketball coach at East High School in Waterloo, pending board approval.  The former Waterloo Schools teacher and administrator led the Trojans program for 30 years, including two state championships, as head basketball coach from 1979-2009. 

“I’m anxious to get back and work with the kids at East,” said the Indianola native who coached basketball at Clarksville in 2012 since leaving East.

In 2010, McGraw was added to the Iowa boys’ basketball Hall of Fame posting 579 wins over 39 years.  His record at East was 465-188 with state titles in 1990 and 2003 and a total of 13 state tournament appearances. 

An interview team made up of assistant coaches, parents and student athletes selected McGraw from candidates who applied for the position.

East High principal Marla Padget said, “I am happy to have Coach McGraw return to East and help us restore a winning tradition.”
