JOHNSON CITY — Science Hill athletic director Keith Turner will be the next Lady Hilltoppers basketball coach.
Turner said superintendent Dr. Richard Bales told him Monday afternoon that he could continue being the athletic director while taking over for former girls basketball coach Darrell Barnwell, who resigned last Monday.
Turner, 47, came to Science Hill in 2001. He was the boys basketball coach at Unicoi County 11 seasons (1990-2001) and coached three years at Monterey High School prior to that.
Turner is a 1983 graduate of Elizabethton and a 1987 graduate of Tennessee Tech. He played basketball for the Cyclones and Tech.
