After just one year coaching girls basketball at Riverside, Corey Britton is leaving to pursue another opportunity.
Britton was announced Friday as Ft. Loramie’s new boys basketball coach. He will also be an intervention specialist in the Loramie district.
Superintendent Dan Holland was among six school and community members who searched for a new coach to lead the program, which has captured three state titles.
“Corey really sold us during his two interviews,” Holland said in a press release. “We checked around and found him to be highly regarded as both a coach and teacher. He maximized what was available to him at both stops. We also believe he’s going to maximize the many resources available to him in Fort Loramie as he lives, teaches and coaches here.”
Britton came to Riverside following two campaigns as boys head coach at Reedsville Eastern High School. He faced rebuilding projects at both places, going 14-30 at Reedsville Eastern and 7-15 at Riverside.
He is a product of Hopewell-Loudon High School and is a 2011 graduate of the University of Findlay.
