Lewisburg High School athletic director Rusty Cagle confirmed to DeSoto County Sports Tuesday morning that head girls’ basketball coach Jason Greer was relieved of his coaching duties on Friday. Neither Cagle, or Greer when contacted by email, offered any further statements on the release.
The Lady Patriots program this past year, playing in a tough Region 1-6A, struggled to a 12-17 record overall and Lewisburg was winless in six district games during the regular season. Lewisburg lost to Olive Branch and DeSoto Central in the district tournament.
Greer was in his sixth season at Lewisburg and came to DeSoto County after being an assistant girls’ coach at Pearl High School.
He has also been an assistant women’s coach at Millsaps College and was an assistant girls’ coach at Northwest Rankin when the school won the MHSAA 6A state championship in 2011.
Greer’s coaching background has also been an assistant boys’ coach at Hillcrest Christian, boys’ and girls’ coach at Union Academy, boys’ coach at Greenville Christian, and girls’ coach at Canton Academy.
