Carl Pennington to Coach Olney

Former Wichita Falls High School head boys' basketball coach Carl Pennington will stay in Texoma for his next job, taking over for J.D. Sullivan with the Olney Cubs.

He told Newschannel 6 one of the benefits of the job is the proximity to his home and family in Wichita Falls. He will live in Olney but his family will remain in the Falls, so he wanted a job where he could be home often.

Pennington compiled a 134-77 record in seven years coaching the Coyotes. His teams qualified for the playoffs in six of those seasons.

He replaces the 14-year veteran Sullivan at Olney, where the former coach won 362 games and 10 district titles.

Last year's Cubs went 34-3, reaching the Region II-A Quarterfinals before falling to Munday.

Returning senior Derrick Paul was named All-State by the TABC after averaging 20.8 points and 12.2 rebounds per game, while Bret Johnson led the area with 120 made three-point shots and was fourth in the area in scoring at 16.8 points per game.
