Brother Rice announces the hiring of Bobby Frasor ‘05, who will take over as the head basketball coach for the Crusaders. Bobby returns home, where he led the Crusaders to a Super Sectional title while earning the distinction of a McDonald’s All-American. Throughout his high school career, Frasor was named the Chicago Catholic League Player of the Year his senior year, earned All Conference honors three times, and earned All-State honors twice.
After graduating from Brother Rice, Bobby attended the University of North Carolina on a basketball scholarship, where he played for legendary coach Roy Williams and won a NCAA National Championship in 2009. When his college playing days were over, Frasor played in Europe for BC Levski Sofia, winning the Bulgarian Cup, and then joined Cypriot team Achilleas Kaimakliou before coming back to the United States.
Frasor returned to North Carolina and became the assistant video coordinator under Coach Roy Williams at UNC; he then moved on to the University of Alabama at Birmingham where he held the position of Director of Basketball Operations.
North Carolina Head Coach Roy Williams said that “Brother Rice hit a home run with the hiring of Bobby Frasor.”
“I am thrilled to have Bobby back as the head coach,” legendary Brother Rice basketball coach Pat Richardson said. “He worked extremely hard as a player, and I know that he will bring that same intensity to coaching. Bobby knows how to compete, having played in one of the biggest rivalries in all of sports, North Carolina vs. Duke, and I’m sure he’ll bring same competitiveness to our program.”
“I am extremely excited to be back in Chicago, especially at Brother Rice,” said Coach Frasor. “The Brother Rice program is filled with a rich tradition and history and, I am looking forward to building upon that success.”
Brother Rice is proud to welcome Bobby back to the maroon and orange as he begins his work developing our Crusaders on and off the court.Read More
