The Dougherty County school board has approved the hiring of Ty Randolph as the new Dougherty County High School basketball coach.
He has head coaching experiencing at Camden County, Ware County, and Grove in Savannah. He spent the last year working in professional player development.
Former head coach Donald Poole resigned in December and Ty Hayes took over as interim.
Randolph knows he's inheriting a young and talented team. He expects his kids to be strong and tough on both ends, but he admits he emphasizes defense.
"I'm a defensive-minded coach," Randolph said. "I believe in pressure defense for 94 feet."
