Flint area coaching carousel still spinning, Herman resigns

Posted: April 28, 2012 by Jared Field in High School

The Flint area coaching carousel still spinning. On Thursday night, Tim Herman sent out a text confirming his resignation as head boys’ basketball coach at Flint Powers. Herman is stepping aside to assume more responsibilities within the organization he leads (Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce) as they take over the local visitors bureau, an organization that formerly employed yours truly.

From Mlive:

Powers won 20 or more games in each of his first four seasons as coach, and Herman collected his 100th career coaching victory last year with a 70-34 victory over Saginaw Heritage.

“It was with mixed emotions that I tendered my resignation,” said Herman. “For the past six years, coaching Powers basketball has been really gratifying. Those boys had become a part of my family … It brought me a lot of joy.”

The Powers’ gig is a great one, for obvious reasons, and another to add to the list of vacancies in the area: Flushing, Swartz Creek, Lake Fenton, Linden, Flint Northwestern, Flint Southwestern, Burton Bentley, Lakeville, Montrose and now Powers.

Lamont Torbert will probably stay on at Northwestern while Jeremy Trent is (almost) certain to take the Lake Fenton job. I would not be surprised if Powers hires internally, but that’s barely an educated guess at this point.

    Man, I feel so out of the loop these days.

    Why wouldnt jeremy trent pursue the powers job? Thats obviously the bigger name job, and i have trouble believing powers could find a more worthy candidate.

  3. GAC says:

    The Montrose and Lakeville jobs are also open

  4. According to his Facebook – former U of M player, Anthony Wright, accepted the Linden job yesterday.

  5. […] in the game — Northern’s Thomas Tucker and Powers’ Tim Herman — are no longer coaching. […]

  6. […] all the Flint area basketball coaching positions that are open, Linden High School was not the school I expected to make a splashy hire, but the […]
