O’Donnell, who spent the last two seasons as an assistant coach at his alma mater, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, replaces Kevin Quinlan, who stepped down on March 10.
“I am thrilled at the opportunity to lead the GCS basketball program. I greatly admire the school’s desire for both academic and athletic success,” O’Donnell said in a press release. “I am honored to have the opportunity to build upon the success of former coach Kevin Quinlan.”
O’Donnell, who will also work with Glenelg Country School’s Development, Communications, and Admissions departments, previously coached at Maret School in Washington D.C., where he won 115 games and won five consecutive regular and postseason titles in six seasons. He also spent six years as a varsity assistant and junior varsity/freshmen coach at Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, Va.
“We are excited to welcome coach O’Donnell to the team. His experience coaching successful programs and his ability to mentor young men on and off the court will be exciting to watch,” added Paul Weir, Director of Athletics at Glenelg Country School.
