Still coachless in Casey
The June basketball season has come and gone, and Casey County still does not have a boys basketball coach. That’s a tough spot for any team, let alone one as starved for success as Casey, which has gone more than 10 years without a winning season.
The Rebels have been in capable hands, with assistant coach Phil Williams leading them through the June schedule and athletic director Victor Black handling administrative chores. But on Friday it will have been seven weeks since Perry Walters resigned, and that’s a long time at this time of year.
Progress has been slow because Casey is in transition between two principals, and the hire will fall to new principal Barry Lee. The wheels should begin turning much faster when Lee takes office next week, especially because Black has already done some preliminary work.
