Findlay Native Named SEC Basketball Coach Of The Year

The Southeastern Conference unveiled its men’s basketball postseason awards as selected by the league’s 14 head coaches.

South Carolina’s Lamont Paris, a Findlay High School graduate, was named SEC Coach of the Year.

South Carolina says the second-year head coach led the greatest single season turnaround in program history this season as the team set a regular season record with 25 wins.

Their next game is March 14th in the SEC tournament.

Paris played basketball for Findlay High School in the late ’80s and early ’90s.

WFIN’s John Marshall featured Paris in an On The Road Ohio show last fall, and that can be heard below.
