East has named assistant Joe Jackson as its boys basketball coach, replacing longtime coach Ron Allen, who retired last month.
Jackson, 29, has been an East assistant for three years. He’s a native of Logan and he was an assistant at Hill City, where he coached under Keith Riley, who has more than 600 wins.
“Keith Riley and Ron Allen, they have been great mentors to me,” Jackson said. “… I feel fortunate to be in this position, and I’m really looking forward to it. We’ve got a chance to do some really good things this next year. Coach Allen has been extremely supportive of everything. We’ve got a great group of kids here.”
