When the 2014-15 school year rolls around at Sherrard, there will be several new faces among the Tigers' head coaching ranks.|
That list grew on Monday when Barry Jackson stepped down after three seasons as Sherrard's boys' basketball coach, in which he compiled a 23-57 record. Last August, he was the subject of a special school board meeting to determine his future, but Jackson retained his job at the time.
The brother of longtime area boys' and girls' hoops coach Brad Jackson and a longtime Tiger assistant under current Mercer County coach Brian Hutton, Jackson was a fixture for several regional-championship teams but could not replicate that magic in his three-year stint.
Jackson's resignation adds to a growing list of vacancies at Sherrard. Recently, longtime volleyball coach Lori Brown was not rehired after a largely successful 13-year tenure in which the Tiger spikers captured three regional titles and the 2006 Class A sectional crown and were a perennial conference title contender.
Also not returning in '14-15 will be football coach Brett Lee. The former Aledo star quarterback was not rehired after a four-year stint in which Sherrard posted four consecutive 4-5 seasons, narrowly missing the playoffs each time.
