Quinn Wooldridge is entering his first season as the Head Boys Basketball for the Bronchos and comes to Bethany after serving as the Head Men's Basketball Coach at Oklahoma Baptist University for the past three seasons. He says, "I am excited about getting started at Bethany. This district is a great place to teach and coach, and the basketball program has a bright future which I'm looking forward to being a part of." In addition to serving at OBU, Wooldridge has had other successful head coaching stops at the collegiate level including right here in Bethany at Southwestern Christian University. At both OBU and SCU Wooldridge was tabbed with moving the programs from a smaller division of competition to a larger one. At SCU, from 2012-2015, Wooldridge helped guide the Eagles from participation in NAIA Division II to NAIA Division I. Then, after returning to his collegiate alma mater, OBU, Wooldridge guided the Bison as they made the difficult jump from NAIA Division I to NCAA Division II.
Former Bethany High School Principal and now Chief Operations Officer of Bethany Schools Matthew Flinton had this to say about Wooldridge, "We are extremely excited to welcome Coach Wooldridge and his family to the BPS community! At his previous coaching assignments as a college and high school head coach, Coach Wooldridge demonstrated a strong work ethic, professionalism, and a desire to build great relationships with his students and players. We are confident Quinn possesses the strong leadership qualities necessary to lead our players and continue the great tradition of Broncho Basketball."
