Tony Harper is a high school basketball institution in El Paso and Texas.  The native El Pasoan began his coaching career at Burges in 1968 and has been the head coach at Montwood since the school opened in 1990.

Harper notched his 900th career victory earlier this year.  He's one of only four coaches in the nation to reach that milestone.

This fall, Harper will be trading in his trademark Montwood sweater vest for a Cathedral sweater vest.  Officials at Cathedral confirmed that today and an official announcement will take place on Friday.
