Highly successful GCHS Lady Cougars head basketball coach Daniel Pharris resigns

After three years coaching the Grayson County High School Lady Cougars basketball squad, head coach Daniel Pharris has resigned his coaching position.

GCHS Athletic Director Josh Basham said about Pharris’ resignation, “I know he’s talked with (Principal) Todd Johnston. I don’t know too much about why he resigned and I don’t know what he has planned for next year.”

Pharris posted a strong 64-30 record (.681 winning percentage) over his three years at the helm, winning the 12th District championship each year. Under his leadership, the Lady Cougars made it to the second round of the region tournament in 2016, and last season Pharris led the program to its first ever Sweet 16 tournament appearance.

Pharris’ team’s won at least 22 games twice, and 2015’s 23-7 mark was the best record in the region.
Basham noted that a search for Pharris’ replacement will begin soon, saying, “We’ll go through the process of finding a new coach as we try to find the right (coach for the job).”
