After the unexpected departure of former Centennial boys basketball coach Pete Froedden, the Cougars have found their new leader for the basketball program.
The school has confirmed that Seneca (Ky.) coach Miquel Coleman will assume duties as head coach.
“Coach Coleman brings a passion for students and basketball that is contagious,” Centennial principal Chris Hames said via a release.
“We are excited about the future of our program. He has great experience, an inspirational story, brings great energy, and has experience coaching and competing at a high level.”
Coleman comes to Centennial from Seneca High School in Louisville. That team went 19-11 last season.
The 2018-19 Cougars suffered an abrupt home playoff exit in the 11-AAA district tournament to Ravenwood, though they were without standout Dusty Williams in that game.
They’ll return Williams and Home Page WillCo Basketball Player of the Year finalist Tre Carlton (pictured above) among others next season.
Froedden was named the 11-AAA Coach of the Year before he and the school parted ways.
