Clubb resigns as Bowling Green boys’ basketball coach

Bowling Green is looking for a new head boys’ basketball coach.

Derrick Clubb, who had been at the helm of the Purples’ program since 2017, has resigned from his position, the school announced Tuesday in a release. 

Clubb’s resignation comes as the coach wants to spend more time with his two young children. “I have two small kids and they are starting to get involved in things,” he said in his statement. “I can’t get these times back.” 

Clubb served as an assistant coach under former BGHS head coach DG Sherrill and was promoted to head coach following Sherrill’s retirement after the Purples won the 2017 KHSAA Sweet Sixteen state championship. 

In three seasons at the helm, Clubb guided the Purples to a 75-25 overall record and three District 14 championships. Bowling Green’s 2019-20 season ended with a 53-42 loss to Warren Central in the Region 4 championship game on March 10. 

“I’d like to thank Coach Clubb for his dedication to Bowling Green High School basketball as the head coach for the past three seasons and for years prior to that as an assistant,” BGHS principal Kyle McGraw said in a statement. 

“In the coming weeks we will work diligently to find the next leader of the program.”
