Fmr Hickory Grove coach Jim Rhodes is new basketball coach at Porter Ridge High

Jim Rhodes from Hickory Grove is the new boys basketball coach at Porter Ridge. Rhodes has been head coach at Hickory Grove for seven years and was junior varsity coach at Independence for two years before that.

At Porter Ridge, Rhodes replaces Jay Fitts, who resigned to take a coaching position at Forest Hills. Fitts coached Porter Ridge for three seasons.

“Jim had a good college playing career in the state of Kansas and was once third in the nation in 3-point shooting,” Porter Ridge athletics director Bill Rogers said. “He’s a very knowledgeable basketball person and he’s got the right amount of enthusiasm, personality and charisma. You know the student-athletes really like him and he’ll bring right amount of discipline along with the enthusiasm.”
