Longview Basketball Coach Resigns

For the first time in five seasons, Longview High School finds itself in search of a new head boys basketball coach.  Tim Martin resigned today, to take over the reigns of the alief elsik program--a perrenial 5A power in basketball hotbed Houston.

"I have mixed emotions," Martin said this afternoon.  "I'm leaving a good program, but I'm looking forward to the opportunity of going in and maintainting good program in Houston.  I know I'm making the right decision."

"He's done a great job," said Longview director of extra curricular activities Pat Collins.  "He's a tremendous individual and I wish him well." 

Martin brought stability to the Lobos program that had seen seven coaching changes in five years before his arrival. The Lobos were 106-55 under Martin, making the playoffs in three of his five seasons.  He said he will honor his contract in Longview and plans to finish out the school year.  His last official day will be July 1.
