Portland High School will have its third head boys basketball coach in three years after Joshua Epperson stepped down to take a women’s basketball assistant position at Trevecca Nazarene University.
“We appreciate all Coach Epperson has done over the past year for our basketball program.,” Portland High School principal David Woods said. “This is an opportunity that just came up out of the blue and he felt like he had to give it a shot. As a 20-year basketball coach myself, I totally understand. Not many high school coaches get a shot to coach college at any level.”
Woods said he’d like to have a head coach in place prior to the beginning of summer camps.
