Amory has hired for Alcorn Central coach Louis Riddick to lead its girls basketball team. Four other coaches – assistant football, boys and girls swimming, and soccer – also received school board approval earlier today.
Riddick will be the Lady Panthers’ fifth coach in three years. D. Bryant coached the 2005-06 season but left just before the next season began; Paula Wax coached the 2006-07 season; Rahim Lockhart quit just a few weeks after being hired last spring; and Yarnell Marks coached this past season – he is still on as the boys coach.
Brandon Speck has more on his blog and will have a full story in Saturday’s Daily Journal.
