Longtime Red Boiling Springs Lady Bulldog Basketball coach Larry White has been named the new coach of the Macon County Tigerette Basketball program.
Macon County Director of Schools, Tony Boles, made the announcement last Tuesday.
White was the Lady Bulldog coach for 37 years at Red Boiling Springs School. Prior to his retirement after the 2013-2014 campaign he had compiled a record of 558-534 in that time. He guided RBS to two state tournament appearances, five sub-state, five region runner-up, and four district championships. He graduated from Macon County High School in 1970 and got his teaching degree from MTSU.
“The future at MCHS with the Tigerettes looks bright and I am so excited for this opportunity,” said White. He indicated that he wanted to be able to continue to provide the program stability and maintain the Tigerette program as one of the elite AA girls basketball programs in the state.
White turns 63 in July but indicated he intended to be at Macon for the long haul. “I received such a response from all the people in Macon County that it impressed me that somebody wanted to see me back in coaching.” He isn’t scared about coaching in what some consider the toughest district in girls AA basketball. “Hey, we had to play Jackson County, Pickett County, and Clarkrange year in and year out at RBS. I am used to it.”
White will oversee the junior high program as it continues to provide continuity for players moving into the high school program. He has hired former RBS prepster Lacey Colter, who played basketball at Freed Hardman and Cumberland University, as an assistant. White indicated that Shawn Carter would be coaching the girls at Macon County Junior High.
