GOODY, Ky. – It’s official, longtime Belfry High School basketball coach Randy Casey has resigned from that position.
“I have accepted another coaching position, but I cannot reveal where at this time,” Casey said on Tuesday morning. “I have received a dream offer and it will be announced at a later date.”
Casey will remain as a history teacher at Belfry High School.
“I would like to thank everyone for their support – from the administration to the faculty,” Casey said. “I’m both excited and sad at the same time.”
His wife Sherrie is a Physical Education teacher and cheerleading coach at BHS, while his daughter Dani will be a senior next year.
Casey had served as head coach of the Pirates for nine years. He had been an assistant at Belfry for 15 years before becoming head coach.
Casey started out as an assistant under former head coach Raymond Justice, then served as an assistant to David Hatfield and Jason Booher, before being named head coach for the Pirates.
He had a record of 150-101 with nine straight 15th regional tournament appearances. During that time he won three 60th District titles and he took his team to the semi-finals of the regional tourney three times.
During his time as head coach, Casey was named as KABC Coach of the Year for the 15th Region, he was named WYMT Coach of the Year and was also named coach of the year by the Williamson Daily News and News Express in past seasons.
His best record at BHS was back in the 2006-07 season when his squad finished with a 24-8 record.
“I have a great opportunity and I’m excited about it,” Casey said. “My family is excited for me too.”
