41 seasons and counting: Orono next stop on basketball coach’s resume

...“I have been doing some substitute teaching in Orono so I know all the kids. I did run an abbreviated summer program, too,” said Donato, who spent the last seven seasons at Lawrence High School in Fairfield and has a career record of 547-219 (.714) at five schools.

He has won 11 regional championships and five state titles.

“The kids are just as interested in being successful as I am,” said Donato. “It’s going to take a lot of effort on their part. It’s going to be a process more than it is wins and losses immediately.

“They are very eager to learn and very eager for us to build a (successful) program. We’ll take our lumps. They weren’t very successful the past two years. You don’t turn that around overnight. We have a lot of work ahead of us,” he added.

Webb has new Winter Home With Donato, Orono

BREWER, MAINE (WABI) - Mike Webb was in the Brewer gym today at the Smokey Lawrence Memorial Tournament. He's an assistant coach with the Orono girls this winter and was watching John Bapst play before the Red Riots took the floor. Webb was cast aside by Bapst after coaching them for years.
