Less than a month after being dismissed, as the interim head basketball coach at NJCAA D1 Lewis & Clark Community College, Kevon Lacey has been reinstated.
Director of Athletics Dr. Cedric Brown announced the return of Kavon Lacey as the interim men’s basketball coach. No reason was given for the initial dismissal, or why the decision was made to re-hire Lacey.
According to The Telegraph, Lacey will also “remain the interim head men’s basketball coach through the 2023-2024 season as well and will have the opportunity to apply for the permanent head coach position following that season.”
After firing Lacey three weeks ago, Brown took over as the interim head coach. Yesterday was Lacey’s first day back on the bench, a game that LCCC lost 73-62 to Olney Central.
Lacey told The Telegraph, “I am thankful, not only for the opportunity to return to the court with my team, but for the college’s additional support to provide me more time on campus and in athletics that I need to prove I can be successful in this role,” Lacey said. “I am looking forward to getting my team through the postseason and focusing on recruitment for next year’s team.”
The Trailblazers finished the regular season with a 10-15 record.
