Ed Johnson is leaving Ben L. Smith High School to become the new girls basketball coach at Page High School, replacing the Pirates’ former head coach, Debbie Jones….There had been talk going around for the last couple of weeks about who the new coach at Page would be and now we are hearing the confirmation coming in late this afternoon…..
Page has a new coach and now Smith will be looking for a new coach….A lateral move across town and it appears to be be a move upward for Coach Johnson based on the winning tradition and history of Page Pirates’ success under Coach Jones….
The word coming from Joe Sirera, at the News and Record on Twitter:
