HoopDirt.com can confirm that Billy Gillispie has returned as the head basketball coach at Ranger College. Back in December, Gillispie had announced that he was stepping away citing health concerns. He has now apparently gotten his health back in order, and will be back on the bench next season. It sounds like assistant coach Josh Mills, who served as the interim head coach last season, will remain on Gillispie’s staff.
Gillispie, the former head coach at UTEP, Texas A&M, Kentucky and Texas Tech, continued to work in the athletic department at Ranger after stepping away from coaching.
