During his coaching career, Bone has produced NBA talent such as Jon Brockman.

“I am excited to add a coach into our community that has the reputation and experience that coach Bone brings, he will undoubtedly positively impact the lives of our student athletes," Jensen said.

Above all, Bone said he is committed to the mission of AMHS and committed to being a part of the school’s faith community.

“I wanted to get back into coaching and after a lot of contemplation and prayer I feel this was going to be a good fit. Unity, relationships, and connectivity, these are the things I missed most about coaching and knew I had to get back in it. I am excited to be somebody’s coach,” Bone said.
