Bishop Stang taps Fairhaven native Jacob Ashworth as new boys basketball head coach


“Bishop Stang High School is pleased to announce the appointment of Jacob Ashworth as the new Head Boys Basketball Coach.

Fairhaven native and current Assistant Coach at WPI, Coach Ashworth will bring experience as an outstanding player and coach to his new position. Having a standout career at Bourne High School and UMass Dartmouth, he was named All-Little East four times, achieved all-time leading scorer status at Bourne, and holds the title of all-time leading 3-point shooter at UMass Dartmouth. Ashworth helped lead the Corsairs to the NCAA Division III Men’s Basketball Sectionals in 2022.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jacob into the Spartan family by way of our Boys Basketball program. Jacob is a basketball lifer who has been a fixture in the South Coast athletic community for years. Achieving great team success at Bourne High School, UMass Dartmouth in college, and WPI as an assistant coach, he has been a key ingredient in the success of those programs, leaving behind an important legacy. Jacob is one of the finest leaders I have ever witnessed in an athletic setting, and that leadership will serve him well as he takes over this program.

His level of preparation, tenacity, and complete commitment really came through as we discussed the position. He has a tangible and exciting vision for the future of our program,” commented Nate Greene, Athletic Director for Bishop Stang.

Coach Ashworth shared: “I am extremely excited to take over the head coaching position at Bishop Stang High School. I look forward to continuing the success that Bishop Stang has endured. I have always wanted to lead a team of my own, and to be able to become a head coach on the south coast is a dream come true.

The south coast is my home, and I look forward to leading the basketball program here at Bishop Stang. I would like to thank President Benson and Mr. Greene for the opportunity for which I am extremely grateful. Go Spartans!”-Bishop Stang High School .
