LANCASTER - For almost a year Cecil Combs had been looking for the right opportunity to move into school administration.
Because he found that chance this week, Garrard County is now looking for a new boys basketball coach.
Combs, who had a 95-89 record as Garrard's coach the last seven years, is the new assistant principal and athletics director at Berea Independent School.
"It was an opportunity that recently became available and one that allowed me to go into administration and still live in Garrard County," said Combs, 49.
His two daughters wanted to continue going to high school in Garrard, a move Combs endorsed.
"I know I will miss coaching and may some day jump back into it, but this is also the right time for me to make this move. Berea is a good, small system for me to get my feet wet in," Combs said. "But I love Lancaster and Garrard County. I knew why my girls wanted to stay here.
