CORBIN — After three years as head coach of the Corbin Lady Redhound volleyball team, Ira Johnson has decided to resign.
He posted a 77-30 record during his stay at Corbin while garnering three 50th District championships along with two 13th Region championships and two trips to the KHSAA State Volleyball Tournament.
“It has been an honor to serve as head volleyball coach while continuing the rich traditions that exemplify Corbin Redhound Athletics,” Johnson said. “I am grateful for the relationships that I have shared with many players, our administrative team, past volleyball coaches, and the fantastic sports reporters that have followed this strong program. I certainly will cherish the memories.
“My greatest priority at this time, however, is to devote a greater degree of time and energy to my wonderful family and our future endeavors together,” he added. “I will deeply miss the team and many of the players I have worked with over the years. Still, I am confident in the foundations that have been laid, while players set individual and team goals for their future.”
Johnson said he will remain involved with the Horizon Volleyball Club as co-director, and coach.
