Wild replaced Kari Goodwin at Summit. Both her and her husband Josh Goodwin, the Summit boys coach, got out of coaching. East Nashville boys coach Jim Fey replaced Josh Goodwin.
Centennial has hired Tyler Hickman as its next boys coach. Hickman replaced Miquel Coleman, who was hired in the offseason to replace Pete Froedden. Coleman resigned less than three weeks from being announced as the Centennial coach.
