Haywood has found its new boys basketball coach.
Oliver Simmons is moving on from University School of Jackson and is taking over the Tomcats’ basketball program.
“I interviewed for the job seven years ago when Kendall Dancy got the job,” Simmons said. “They reached out to me since I was interested the first time. They were showing me what is happening in the school district, and I really liked what I saw.”
Haywood County Schools Superintendent Joey Hassell confirmed Simmons’ hiring through a press release on Twitter on Monday afternoon.
