JT introduces Tony Pinson as head basketball coach

By: Coleman Swierc - email

Tyler, Tx (KLTV) - The John Tyler Lions officially have a new basketball coach.

Tony Pinson was named the new coach today, and did what all good coaches do on their first day,  they practiced.

"The hire was kind of late in the year, " said Pinson, "so I wanted to at least be able to meet with the guys once before the summer began."

Pinson comes to John Tyler from Manor High School, where he posted a 26-9 record in 2008-2009.

He also has stops in Mexia and Gainsville, where he led his team to the state tournament, the same tournament he hopes to take the Lions to.

"There is a rich talent pool here, and I believe that we can use that to do well, I am very excited about the opportunity that I have been given."
