The administration would like to express our heartfelt sympathy, thoughts and prayers to his family, friends, and our athletic family. The athletic program at Grand Blanc is a tight-knit community that is deeply feeling this loss, and we plan to provide as much support to the staff and players as they need in this difficult time. We will remember Coach Mullaly as a coach, mentor, teacher, friend, and forever Bobcat.
We’ve witnessed the tremendous outpouring of support from our fellow school districts, athletic programs and community members and we greatly appreciate all of these sentiments. It is truly a testament to the high esteem in which Coach Pat was held.
