WILLARD, MO - Current Poplar Bluff head coach Lamont Frazier has accepted the same position at Willard High School after being approved by the school board Thursday night.
"Coach Frazier is someone who will not only have a positive influence on our basketball program, but on the entire student body as well," said Willard Athletic Director Jeff Staley. "We are very excited to hand the program over to him."
"It’s a great basketball town," said Frazier. "It seems as though the basketball drives the enthusiasm in the community. That’s what I thrive on, to be in an opportunity where the sport I like is important."
Frazier inherits a talented group headlined by its upcoming junior class. He plans on visiting with the assistant coaches Friday. Frazier will remain at Poplar Bluff until his contract expires June 1st.
