A familiar face will be taking over the boys’ basketball program at Lenoir City High School.

Athletic director Greg Boling announced Monday that girls’ basketball coach Josh Epperson will be taking over the position and the school will begin the search for a replacement to lead the Lady Panthers’ program.

“Coach Epperson has decided to pursue the boy’s job after two years as the head girls coach,” Boling said in an email Monday. “Coach Epperson has a great work ethic, wonderful people skills, is a terrific motivator and is able to build lasting relationships with his players. The administration at Lenoir City High School is proud of the accomplishments of Coach Epperson and is looking forward to many years of strong teams from a rich and proud basketball program.”
