The Canton High School Sports Department has announced the hiring of Eric MacKinnon as the new college boys basketball coach.
MacKinnon succeeds Ryan Gordy, who has coached for 10 seasons and was recently promoted to CHS Assistant Director of Athletics and remains Director of K-12 Wellness for Canton Public Schools.
Former Oliver Ames, MacKinnon comes to the CHS after a five-year stint as an assistant coach at Franklin Pierce College in New Hampshire. He was also the director of the Boston Celtics basketball camps and currently teaches wellness and physical education in Easton Public Schools.
“We are delighted that a coach with Eric’s college experience is coming to lead our program,” said Danny Erickson, CHS athletic director. “She is a passionate, competent and committed person who is ready to seize this opportunity. We are so lucky to have landed it.
“I couldn’t be more honored and humbled for this opportunity to join the Canton Bulldog community,” said MacKinnon. “Canton High School has a proud tradition of great athletes, great coaches and a culture of doing things the right way. I look forward to working with these student-athletes and helping create a championship program in one of the most competitive leagues in the state.
