GCT hires Martin as boys basketball coach

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Greene County Tech officially approved the hiring of a new boys basketball coach at a district-wide school board meeting on Thursday night.

Greenwood native Brian Martin is now the new leader of the GCT program, leaving his alma mater Greenwood High School after 6 seasons. Prior to coming home to Greenwood, Martin was a basketball coach at Beebe.

He inherits a program that once was a regular state title contender, winning championships in 2007 and 2009. "I'm honored and excited to be a part of the GCT family and to continue the tradition of Eagle basketball as the head coach in a great school district," Martin said in a statement to Region 8 News.

Martin replaces Jay Robertson as Head Coach, who requested re-assignment at a board meeting earlier this year.
