Murray, Ky., May 16-----Wyatt Foust was named the new Murray High Girls Varsity Basketball head coach in a special called press conference inside Murray High School Taylor Gymnasium.
Foust has served as the Assistant Boys coach at Owensboro Catholic High School. Prior to that, Foust was head girl’s coach at Notre Dame Academy in Park Hills, Ky. Over the course of his coaching career, Foust has assisted and developed 19 players that have gone on to play college basketball.
At Owensboro Catholic, he contributed to a team that was All A Regional Champs, Owensboro Invitational Tourney runner-up and defeated four teams ranked in the top 20 in the state. At Notre Dame Academy, Foust led their teams to a record of 54-34 and was ranked as high as fourth in the state. Foust led them to the Louisville Invitational semi-finals where they were named regional runner-ups. Additionally, Foust has served as assistant coach at Kentucky Wesleyan and Greenwood High School. Currently Foust coaches the Kentucky Premier U13 Girls in AAU Basketball.
Foust will be relocating to Murray in the very near future and will begin work immediately with the Murray High Girls Basketball team until the dead period. “Being new to Murray, we ask that all lady Tiger fans support Coach Foust as he learns about the city of Murray and Murray High Basketball,” said Jim Baurer, MHS athletic director.
Foust replaces Rechelle Turner, the former MHS Lady Tigers coach, who was recently named the new Murray State University Lady Racer’s Basketball coach. Baurer said the Murray Independent School District thanks Turner, for her dedication and success in building the MHS Lady Tiger Basketball program to where it is today. “She will always be regarded as one of the top coaches in the state.”
Baurer said the MISD is confident that Foust will continue to build on the success of Lady Tiger Basketball. “We are excited he has accepted our offer to work with Murray High student athletes.”
