Coach Smith is leaving the Yellow Jackets after just one season, as he is now getting his first Varsity job. Kodi said on Twitter “That being a varsity basketball coach in Indiana has been a dream ever since he was in elementary school. He is very thankful and honored to be getting the nod with Centerville”.
Kodi, has well over 10 years of coaching experience and working day in and day out in the gym. He will be loooking to change the motto of Centerville Basketball. Centerville is coming off of a 8-14 season, which was Centerville’s best year since the 2017-2018 campaign. The Bulldogs have not had a .500 season since the 2016-2017 season under coach Seve Beach.
