Springboro boys soccer coach resigns after 24 seasons


Paul Bohaboy, who guided the Springboro High School boys soccer program from a Division II program in the Fort Ancient Valley Conference to a D-I power in the Greater Western Ohio Conference, has retired from coaching after 24 seasons with the Panthers.

Bohaboy cited time restraints pertaining to his working career and family as reasons to retire. A school release announced his retirement on Monday. He lauded Springboro athletic directors, school administration and families for their support over the years.

“I would like to thank all my former assistant coaches for (their) dedication, their endless time and enthusiasm for this program that I dearly love,” he said in a statement. “Finally, I would like to thank all the players, parents, boosters and the community for allowing me to be part of their lives and community and giving me a lifetime of memories and joy.”

The Panthers boys and girls soccer programs rocketed to the area’s best D-I teams after joining the GWOC. Bohaboy’s accomplishments were numerous:

• A 257-128-58 career record (.646 winning percentage).

• A 132-22-22 conference record (.813).

• Nine-time conference coach of the year.

• Three-time district coach of the year.

• Ten conference titles; eight in the GWOC and two in the FAVC.

• Eight-time district finalist.

• 2016 district champion.

• Eight players who were conference players of the year, including two-time POY and 2017 grad Christian Wright, Springboro’s only first team All-Ohioan.

“It is rare in this era to find many coaches with the longevity that Coach Bohaboy has sustained,” AD Austin Rhodes said in a release. “On behalf of the entire Springboro Athletic Community, I would like to express our thanks to Coach Bohaboy for everything he has done for our student-athletes and the soccer community. You will be missed.”
