Mansfield man climbs the coaching ladder with new Nevada post
BY MARK FARINELLA SUN CHRONICLE STAFF | Posted: Sunday, May 24, 2015
It's a commonly-held belief that in order to coach a sport at a high level, one has to have played it at a high level as well.
And it's a belief that's often disproved.
There are plenty of coaches considered at the top of their profession that weren't stars in their sports. One needs to look no further than Bill Belichick, who never played a single down in the NFL, as a shining example.
Anthony Ruta hopes to follow in those footsteps, although in a different sport than the one he played in high school.
Anthony as a senior in 2007
A former Mansfield High School football player, Ruta, 25, was recently named the director of men's basketball operations
at the University of Nevada in Reno, part of the staff of new head coach Eric Musselman.
