Knoxville,TN--(WVLT-TV), Former Tennessee basketball player
Jon Higgins has been named head basketball coach of the boys team at Central high school. That News confirmed for Local-8 Sports by Fulton head coach Jody Wright, who Higgins has coached under as an assistant since 2009.
When asked about his assistant heading down Broadway to take over his first head coaching position Wright said, "you teach them all you know, but you've got to hold a little something back." The two men will square off against each other on the hardwood next season as the Bobcats and Falcons continue their long standing rivalry.
Higgins played at the University of Tennessee from 1999 through 2003, first for Jerry Green then under Buzz Peterson.
