“Mike came up through the same ranks as I did under my mentor, coach Gie Parsons at Clarion,” added Brunelli. “That experience gave him exactly what I need in an assistant.”
Whitling earned his B.S. degree in finance in 2004 from Clarion University (Pa.) and received his M.Ed. in 2008. He is single and resides in Anderson.
