A man who has been a fixture of the Marion County High School boys basketball team will step down after this season.
Josh McKay, a former head coach and long time assistant for the Knights, recently filed his paperwork to resign at the end of the season.
McKay served as a head coach in the mid 1970s and returned as an assistant coach in the early to mid 1980s for Tim Davis.
Since then, McKay has prowled the sidelines for every other coach in the program's history including Davis, Kelly Wells, Greg Williams, Brad Fraser and current Head Coach Tim Peterson.
McKay has indicated that Matthew Thomas, who already coaches with the Knights, has been picked to replace him. Thomas is a former player under Peterson.
McKay said he will still be substitute teaching. He emphasized that he wouldn't disappear from the local sports scene, while planning on still attending games.
The long time coach graduated from Lebanon High School in 1964 and played for Campbellsville College. During his time there he was one of their leading rebounders.
