The Valley Grove School Board on Monday named Ryan Umbenhauer the new head varsity basketball coach for Rocky Grove High School.
Former Oriole player Chip Bell was hired as jayvee coach.
Umbenhauer replaces Steve Cutchall who resigned in late October along with assistant coach Dylan Gravatt. Cutchall had led Rocky Grove to two District 10 class “A” championships.
With the last-minute resignation of their former coach, the Valley Grove board filled the coaching vacancy on the evening of the first official day of practice sessions. The Orioles will begin the 2013-2014 season on December 6 in the opening round of their own Roy Sanner Memorial Tipoff Tournament.
