Fresh off the decidedly random news over the weekend that former Cat Rodrick Rhodes has shown interest in the head coaching job at Owsley County High School, word has come out that there’s another school courting Rhodes: the Harlan Green Dragons.
It seems that after word got out that Rhodes was looking at Owsley County, the Harlan athletic director contacted him to gauge his interest in their head coaching position, with the former Cat later submitting an application for the job. Rhodes is currently an assistant at Texas-Pan American, where his job duties reportedly involve “overseeing the areas of recruiting, on-floor coaching, academics, scouting opponents, film breakdown, game prep, practice planning and player development.” Considering that all sounds like the stuff the head coach should probably be doing, it’s no wonder Rhodes is trying to find somewhere he can run the show. Regardless of where he ends up going, it looks like Rhodes will be joining the ranks of Kentucky high school coaches next season, something he seems to be pretty excited about:
“I would absolutely love, and find it an honor to coach in the state of Kentucky,” Rhodes told LEX18’s Alan Cutler. “I would actually find it an honor and privilege to coach in the rich state of Kentucky.”
