He was assistant girls’ coach at Archbishop Williams, then went 94-40 and won four sectional and two Catholic Conference titles from 2005-2010 at Ursuline. He also helped his alma mater as head boys coach at BC High in 2009.
Neely was an assistant DA for three years.
“I loved being a lawyer, but coaching became a passion,’’ added Neely, who also coaches the Smash Volleyball Junior Olympic team in Newton, formerly coached the women’s club team at Northeastern University and was assistant boys basketball coach at Foxborough High until two years ago for his younger brother, C.J. Neely.
“One of my former players at Ursuline told me about the opening at Babson,’’ he said. “I had coached eight years in high school and was ready for a new challenge, and this is a dream come true.’’
