    His dad, John Paul, was the coach at Buckhorn when they made back to back trips to the Sweet 16 in 1988 and 1989. So basketball coaching is in his family genes.

    Is he from the Henry County area originally? Jackson to Eminence is a pretty good haul, and to be honest I don't think most, if any would consider it a "step up" as far as a coaching stop goes. That leads me to think he is from or has family in the area.

    No, from Perry County.

    Good luck, Coach Amis.

    Well. If you want to look at lifestyle, it's a huge step up. Jackson is a very depressing place. The population is continually in decline. There's no job market, so nobody is moving there. He'll be 30 minutes from Louisville.

    Eminence itself isn't, BUT, I get your point, he's a lot closer to where the action is and definitely much different from the mountain region.

    So what did I miss. I was under the impression Mays got the job and now he's out? Where's he at and why?

    He was offered an assistant coaching job at Kentucky Wesleyan and accepted it.
