Donnell Gibson is the new boys’ basketball varsity coach at Como Park High School. 

Donnell Gibson’s life’s mission is to inspire and motivate the next generation. As the new boys’ basketball varsity coach at Como Park High School, he has a new program to help guide kids along a positive path.

Gibson has been a behavior intervention specialist and an assistant coach for Cougar boys’ basketball at Como since 2014. Known as “Mr. D” or “Coach D” around Como, Gibson’s work extends beyond the school walls.

In 2015, he established The Gibson Foundation with the vision of creating spaces and opportunities that positively impact youth. Now, the new responsibility as a head coach gives Gibson another tool to construct a safe place for kids who may be challenged by an uncertain future.
