New McCracken County High School Names Basketball Coaches

McCracken County High School, which will open in the fall of this year, has named their basketball coaches for the 2013-14 seasons. Lone Oak head coach and Lyon County native Josh Barnett will be the first head coach of the Lady Mustangs.  Barnett is 134-78 in seven seasons as a head coach at Lone Oak, Paducah Tilghman, and Caldwell County. The Lady Flash were 23-10 this past season and 43-24 in his two seasons there.

Prior to Lone Oak, Barnett coached three seasons at Paducah Tilghman, going 65-29 and leading the Lady Tornado to the 2009 First Region title game.  He also coached two seasons at Caldwell County from 2006-08 and was 26-25.

Heath coach Burlin Brower will be the boys' basketball coach for McCracken County.  Brower was 96-60 in five seasons at Heath, leading the Pirates to two All-A region titles.


McCracken County High School will be formed with the consolidation of Lone Oak, Reidland, and Heath.  Last year, it was announced that Lone Oak's Jack Haskins will be the McCracken County High School football coach.
