Head Coaching Changes From Around The Area 

Former Madison Cub and Shawe Hilltoppers Head Coach Sherron Wilkerson was named Jeffersonville Red Devils Head Coach Tuesday Evening  Wilkerson is 39-76 in five seasons as a head coach. He went 3-19 at Logansport this past season, his first as the bench boss there.  Wilkerson’s first head-coaching job was at Indianapolis Herron, where he went 2-16 in 2009-10. He later returned to Jeff, where he assisted Joe Luce. In 2018 he left to take over the program at Shawe Memorial. Wilkerson went 4-19 in one season with the Hilltoppers before heading to Madison. He had a successful two-year stint with the Cubs, going 30-22, before venturing up to Logansport this past season.

SNODGRASS HIRED AS NEW WASH BOYS’ COACH

Blake Snodgrass, who spent the past two seasons as an assistant at Jeff, was also approved as the new boys’ coach at New Washington on Tuesday evening. “Congrats to a great former assistant and now HEAD COACH Blake Snodgrass. He has a passion for basketball and helping boys become men! Excited for his future,” former Jeff head coach Andrew Grantz tweeted. Coaching is in Snodgrass’ blood. “It all comes natural,” the 37-year-old, who spent three seasons at Fishers before heading to Jeff, said Tuesday night. His father, Rick, is a long-time head coach in the state (with stops at Twin Lakes, Danville, North Harrison, Portage and LaCrosse). Meanwhile his brother Brandon recently completed his second season as the bench boss at Rising Sun. Ironically, New Washington and Rising Sun will play in the same sectional for the next two seasons after the IHSAA’s recent realignment. “It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Snodgrass said. “I’m sure it’s going to be nerve-wracking for our mother, she’s already mentioned that.” He takes over for Kyle Brown, who went 15-33 in his two seasons as the Mustangs’ bench boss. New Wash is slated to return most of its key players from last season, including junior standout Matthew Arthur.
