Cliff Little has been hired as Tishomingo County’s girls basketball coach. Little spent the past five seasons at East Webster, and he led the boys to the Class 1A state championship this year. He also coached the girls team his first two years on the job. East Webster is the only place the 29-year-old has coached.
The move brings the Corinth native back close to home. He’ll live on his parents’ land in Glen.
“It was real easy to take this job but hard for me to leave,” Little said.
He replaces Mike Cartwright, who resigned after coaching the Lady Braves for two seasons. Tishomingo was a sub.-500 team this year and lost to eventual state champ Gentry in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs.
