Meet the Head Coach
Head Coach Bernie Salazar begins his 20th season this winter at the helm of the successful Lion boys basketball program. Bernie grew up in Arizona, and attended Regis Prep where he won two Arizona state championships as a player. After two years at Cochise Junior College, Bernie transferred to Gonzaga University to complete his undergraduate education.
After four years as an assistant coach at Salpointe High School in Tucson, Bernie joined the Bellarmine faculty and basketball staff in the fall of 1992. In 1994, he replaced longtime Lion Head Coach Steve Anstett.
During his years as head coach, Bernie's teams have won two Narrows League Championships (2008 & 2012), one District Championship (1999), and had seven state tournament appearances (1994, 1998, 1999, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2012).
Bernie teaches Spanish at Bellarmine. He and his wife, Darlene, (Guetle B'85), live in University Place and have four children, Jacob (B'13) , Julia (B'15) , and twin sons Jonas and Jordan.
