Morgan leaves Chapel Hill, heads down east
Veteran Chapel Hill High School boys’ basketball coach Tod Morgan has resigned to accept a similar post at C.B. Aycock in Pikeville.
In an email Tuesday night, Morgan cited his family’s ties to eastern North Carolina — he’s a native of Morehead City, his wife Courtney is a native of New Bern — and family-related issues for the move.
Morgan, who coached the Tigers for five years, has doubled as Chapel Hill’s athletic director for the past four years.
After Morgan’s 8-14 debut in 2008-9, the Tigers posted a record of 87-20 and a winning percentage of 81.3, primarily behind standouts Denzel Ingram and Anthony Vanhook, over the past four years.
Chapel Hill won Carolina 6 3-A Conference championships each of the past three seasons, winning at least 22 games in each of those campaigns with a best of 26-2 in 2011-12, Ingram’s senior year.
