Grant County High School is looking for a new basketball coach after Jim Hicks is moving back to Eastern Kentucky after this school year.
Hicks came to Grant County in 2010 and amassed a 48-42 record in three seasons as the boys head basketball coach.
Hicks said his decision to leave is what he believes to be in the best interest of him and his family.
“Former superintendent Mike Hibbett brought me in three years ago and he made it clear that he wanted the basketball program to be important. He gave me a lot of resources and made it important.
