Celebrating Dan Mazzulla

High School

CRANSTON, RI (WPRI) – A crowd of family, friends and neighbors gathered at Spirito’s Restaurant in Cranston Thursday night to celebrate Johnston’s Dan Mazzulla. The former Panthers basketball star and head coach is recovering from a brain tumor.

The Mazulla’s are starting a foundation, “Team Danny” to raise money for cancer research. Meanwhile, despite going through chemotherapy, Dan is back on the sidelines coaching his grandson’s rec team.
