Chesterton boys basketball coach Marc Urban is leaving his mark on the program and the State is taking notice.

Urban was named the 2020 Bob King District 1 Coach of the Year by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association on Tuesday.

“You don’t win these type of awards by yourself,” Urban said. “My wife and daughters support me, a group of players that have bought in and work hard, great assistant coaches and an administration that is extremely supportive. Those are the reasons you get awards like this.”

Urban directed Chesterton to a 23-3 record and the school’s first Duneland Athletic Conference (7-0) since 2008. In four season at CHS, Urban’s teams have compiled a 79-23 record, including the 2019 Sectional title.

“There are so many people that have a part in this and that is what is humbling about it,” Urban said. “It’s always about Chesterton first and always will be.”

Urban is a 2001 graduate of Lake Central High School before going on to attend Indiana State University. He also earned the District 1 Girls Coach of the Year in 2015.
