Lady Knights Head Basketball Coach Trent Milby has verbally accepted a position with Berea College.

According to Marion County Superintendent Taylora Schlosser, Milby has not officially signed a contract with Berea College and, therefore, hasn’t submitted a letter of resignation to the Marion County Public School distict.

Milby said he doesn't want to make a comment about this until he signs a contract with Berea.

Milby coached the Marion County Lady Knights to a perfect 39-0 record and a state championship during the 2012-13 season. He was also named the 2013 Naismith High School Girls Coach of the Year.

Milby led Marion County to four consecutive Sweet 16 appearances, including three trips to the final four and two state championship appearances.

Milby and the Marion County Lady Knights also made history this year by becoming the first team, boys or girls, to win four straight 5th Region titles.
