It took a while, but Carrollton High School has a new head boys basketball coach.
At a special meeting of the Carrollton School Board June 14, the board hired Todd English to head up the boys basketball program.
English, a 1987 graduate of Carrollton, is returning to the court where he was an outstanding player. He also coached the Lady Warriors for 11 seasons, compiling an overall record of 140-98. He led the Warriors to the 2001 Northeastern Buckeye Conference title.
He moved on to coach the Edison Local Wildcats for six seasons following the 2005 season.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to coach again at Carrollton,” English said in a press release. “The basketball program has experienced success over the years and I have had the opportunity to coach against them in the tournament.”
English wants to see the youth program continue and grow.
“Continuing the youth program that has been established in the community will be important for the future success on the basketball court.”
He has only been with the team a short time, but likes what he has seen.
“I like what I have seen in the short term,” he said. “I look forward to helping them prepare for what I believe will be a fun and exciting winter.”
In his playing days at Carrollton, English earned nine varsity letters in golf, basketball and baseball.
During his senior year, he was named All-first team Senate League in all three sports.
He is a 1991 graduate of Malone College and was inducted into the Carrollton Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010.
English resides in Carrollton with his wife Megan.
