The Canton School District has a new boys basketball coach. The Tigers hired Ron Curtis last week to replace head coach Cody Ash and interim coach Samantha Powers. Curtis said a connection with Canton High School Principal Bill Dorethy led him to the Tigers.
Curtis notes Canton’s basketball tradition was also intriguing.
Curtis has been coaching for over 15 years and has had stops in Wisconsin, and Houston. The new Canton boys coach says he learned a lot of lessons during his time in Texas to develop his philosophy.
Curtis hopes to identify a true point guard during the off season as well. The Tigers finished 8-14 last year.
