PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - One of the more storied basketball programs in the 15th Region announced its new leader Friday.
Shelby Valley officially announced that Jim Hicks would be the new boys basketball coach. Hicks has a reputation of rebuilding programs, but says he and his staff plan to just add to the already rich tradition of the Wildcats.
"There are a lot of great possibilities. I feel like this team is going to be a regional contender right off the bat," says Hicks. "It's like I told the kids, this is not a rebuilding job. We're just going to add on to the tradition, and try to create more tradition here. I'm just real excited about it."
