Former Trigg County boys’ basketball assistant coach and athletics director Toby Miles has been hired as the new head coach for Christian County High School boys basketball.

CCHS Principal Matt Boehman thanked the selection committee for their help amid the search for a new leader of the Colonels basketball team and is excited for Miles to take the reigns.

“I would like to thank the members of the selection committee for their work during the entire process,” Boehman said. “Christian County High School is very excited to welcome Coach Toby Miles to our family. Coach Miles has a wealth of experience coaching and working with student/athletes. Coach Miles is ready to continue the tradition of CCHS Basketball.”

From Memphis, Tennessee, Miles comes to the Colonels with plenty of experience under his belt.

He played college basketball at Highland Community College and Lindsey Wilson College and when his playing days came to a close, he translated that experience into coaching.

Prior to coaching at Trigg County, Miles was the head coach of boys basketball at Hopkins County Central High School and at Sycamore High School in Pleasant View, Tennessee. In his time at Sycamore High, he was named District Coach of the Year.

Miles will replace current CCPS Athletic Director Kerry Stovall, who stepped down from the head coaching role in June. Stovall had coached at Christian County for 10 years starting in 2001 and led the Colonels to winning the Kentucky Boys State Basketball tournament. He resigned that year, but returned to Christian County as a coach in 2017.

Miles will have big shoes to fill, but he is eager to get started and lead the Colonels to success in the foreseeable future.

“Words cannot describe how excited I am to be coaching at Christian County High School,” Miles said. “It is an extreme privilege to be a part of such a rich basketball tradition. I’m very thankful and humbled to be granted the opportunity from the selection committee to continue on with the process of molding young men in a positive light through the game of basketball.”
