The boy’s basketball program at Monsignor Edward Pace High School won the last of its six state titles in 2008.
New coach Jean-Camille Dubuisson II wants to take the team back to the championship tournament.
“We want to let them know that we are here and that there is a change in leadership,” he said of plans to connect with alumni and the community.
Dubuisson, 42, of Hollywood, most recently was head coach at ASA Miami junior college; head coach at Hallandale High School and for six years, an assistant coach at Miramar High.
Pace Athletic Director Tom Duffin, Principal Ana Garcia and a committee chose Dubuisson from among 50 applicants.
“He has deep ties to the community and has a collegiate connection,” Duffin said about what Pace wanted in a coach when it hired him in June.
Dubuisson said he played basketball at North Mami Senior High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts from Lynn University. He is married to Carlette Dorsey-Dubuisson and has two children and three grandchildren.
