Springstead, Thompson finally find a match
...
On Tuesday Steve Thompson was officially announced as Springstead's new boys basketball head coach.
...
The similar paths of Steve Thompson and the Springstead High boys basketball program finally converged this week, forming what the school hopes is a perfect union.
Over the summer, Thompson went to work as the new head coach at Gulf High, only to pull out when it became apparent he would not receive a teaching position.
...
On Tuesday Springstead officially hired Thompson as the eighth head coach in program history.
...
The 52-year-old Thompson brings a 401-193 career record cobbled together across four previous coaching stops in Kentucky, Mississippi and his home state of Tennessee.
Three times he has earned Coach of the Year honors, twice in Tennessee and once in Mississippi. Twice he has taken a team as far as the state semifinals, in 1988 at County Day School in Memphis, Tenn. and 1994 at Tyner High in Chattanooga, Tenn.
Last year at Perry County High in Linden, Tenn. he took both the boys and girls teams to regionals. But he decided he wanted to make a move to Florida, which originally led him to Gulf.
However, without a fulltime teaching gig, he opted to resign, returning to Tennessee while some old friends tugged at him to join them as an assistant coach.
As he searched for another job, he became aware of the Springstead opening. He started as a physical education/health teacher there a few weeks ago.
"It feels good," Thompson said.
...
Thompson marks the sixth head coach since Greg O'Connell stepped down following the 1999-2000 season, ending his 23-year tenure.
...
"I normally take over programs that are really, really bad and build them up and make them good," Thompson said. "This program is not like that, but it's still a rebuilding effort.
"…What happened last year is a great motivating factor for the team, the school and the county. But in the end, with losing four starters, this team will be judged by what they're doing, not references to last year's team."
Thompson gave great credit to George Bennett, Kelly's former assistant who will continue to fill that same role, for "keeping this program afloat" in the absence of a head coach.
...
"I didn't come here to lose," Thompson said.
