Houston basketball coach Bruce Franks has retired after 28 years in the district.
Franks will step back into the private school ranks as head boys and girls basketball coach at Hebron Christian.
“I’ve been blessed,” Franks told the Chickasaw Journal. “I give it all to the Lord. I try to coach the kids as if they were my own.”
Franks, who has a career record of 1,030-610 in boys and girls basketball, also taught and coached at Woodland, Calhoun Academy, Chickasaw Academy and Wilkinson County Christian.
He led three teams to state championships and made 23 North State appearances.
