Thomas Rowswell, a former boys basketball coach at Black Hills High School, is Tumwater High School's new boys basketball coach, the school announced Monday.
Rowswell, a math teacher at Black Hills, spent three seasons coaching the Wolves from 2007 through 2010 and compiled a 25-39 win-loss record. He replaces Curtis Medved, who resigned last month after five seasons. He guided the Thunderbirds to a 6-15 record and qualified for the 2A District IV tournament this past season.
Rowswell and Medved were teammates at Olympia High School under then-coach John Kiley. Rowswell spent last season as a color commentator for Roxysports.com.
