If you’re an Asbury basketball fan and you saw the minutes of the last County School Board meeting, you might have had a fright.

It included the Board accepting the resignation and retirement of both boys basketball coach Johnny Pelham and girls basketball coach Jimmy Jones. Both are senior coaches in the Marshall County coaching community. So the thought of losing both at one time would be a devastating blow to the Rams program.

Not to worry. The coaches will still be around.

They’re expected to retire, but come back to the school as contract teachers and coaches.

Coach Jones has 36 years of coaching experience and Coach Pelham has 31. 

"Nothing will change in regards to the coaching," Coach Pelham said.
