Browning takes Myrtle basketball job
The Union County School Board of Trustees appointed former Ingomar standout Rob Browning as the new boys and girls basketball coach at Myrtle last Monday.
Browning, 25, has served the past three seasons at Amory High School, beginning as the Lady Panthers head coach for the 2010-2011 season and taking over both as head boys and girls basketball coach beginning with the 2011-2012 season.
A former member of the Ingomar Falcons’ squad in high school under then-coach Norris Ashley, Browning was an all-state point guard and played in the 2006 state championship.
He later served as a voluntary assistant coach for the Myrtle Hawks during the 2009-2010 season under Jonathan Ashley, while finishing his degree at the University of Mississippi.
Browning will take over his new position this fall, replacing former Myrtle coach Cliff Orman, who recently took over the Ripley Lady Tigers coaching job.
Former Lady Tigers coach Katie Bates left Ripley to take a coaching job at Pine Grove.
