“Karl has been here longer than any other coach I have,” Turner said. “He’s a very intelligent man, much smarter than I am. He will do a great job in that role.”
Hornback’s former assistant David Brokenshire will head the Porcupines wrestling program.
A vital cog in the athletic program’s machinery is the administrative assistant to the AD. Former admin Erika Bragg has moved into the high school’s administrative office and Tina MacDonald, coming over from Reno Elementary, will be Turner’s new assistant.
“I don’t think anyone realizes how much comes through this office,” Turner said. “It’s a challenge to sit at that desk. But I know Tina will do fine, just as Erika did.”
Turner is pleased with the overall chemistry of the athletic staff and is confident the new coaches are a positive add to the mix.
