Denver, CO - March 8, 2012
Tom Thenell has been hired as Mullen’s next football coach, the school announced today. Thenell is a 1980 graduate of Mullen, where he played quarterback, went onto CSU and Tom spent seven years as a football assistant at Mullen prior to Bear Creek. He was also the school’s boys basketball coach for three years.
“I know the high standards that Mullen demands of us all, and as a teacher and football coach, you can be sure that the kids under my watch will be expected to meet those standards in the classroom and on the field each and every day,” Thenell said.
The standards have changed at both schools. Some say for better or worse depending on the school one attends. One thing for sure is JK Mullen is headed in the right direction with 802 enrolled students. Also alumni continue to contribute to put the De la Salle school back on track.
According to Sister Brendan Jordan, “Tom Thenell is not only the best and most qualified man to lead Mullen’s football program. Tom Thenell is Mullen. We simply could not have selected a finer coach, a better teacher, a more honorable man for the job.”
In addition to coaching, Thenell will teach physical education and supervise the weight room as a full time faculty member.
JK Mullen faces Cherry Creek in a playoff football game scheduled for Friday Nov 13 @ 07:00pm at the Stutler Bowl Stadium Stadium Address: 9300 E Union Ave, Greenwood Village, CO 80111
