The Trousdale County girls basketball team will have a new coach on the sideline next season after coach Jeremy Wilhelm was informed Friday that he will not be retained in that position.

Wilhelm was informed of the decision by Director of Schools Clint Satterfield.

In his nine seasons with the Lady Jackets, Wilhelm had a 93-157 overall record and went 33-49 in regular-season district play. His teams went 4-11 in district tournament play and 1-5 in region tournaments. That one win was a home quarterfinal upset of Clarkrange in 2011.

The Lady Jackets finished the most recent season at 9-17 overall and 6-8 in District 6-A before losing at Clay County in the district quarterfinals.

“Coach Wilhelm is an outstanding employee in our school district, for which we value his service to students,” Satterfield said. “Under much thought and reflection, I have decided to reassign his coaching responsibilities for 2018-19.

“Coach Wilhelm will remain as a teacher and a coach in our school district, but will no longer be responsible for high school girls basketball.”

Satterfield said the district would be accepting applications for the coaching vacancy through May 11 and had a goal of having a new coach in place by May 18.
