Berry High hires new boys and girls basketball coaches

Berry High athletics director Bryant Bailey said the school has hired new boys and girls basketball coaches.

Former West Mecklenburg junior varsity and varsity assistant coach Maurice Jones is the boys coach. He replaces Carlton Anthony, who will remain on staff at the school. Jones will be Berry's third coach in three seasons. Berry was 17-7 but missed the playoffs last season under Anthony.

The new girls coach is Ryan Copeland who works at Charlotte's Thomasboro Academy. He did not coach in the 2011-12 season but coached in Nevada in 2010-11. Copeland replaces Robert Hollis, who led Berry to the ME-GA 7 regular-season championship and a N.C. 4A regional semifinal berth.

Bryant said Hollis remains at the school as a teacher.
