James Herman was approved as the next head boys basketball coach at Coshocton High School during a special board of education meeting on May 4.

Herman is a 1992 graduate of Indian Valley High School and a 1999 graduate of South Wesleyan University where he played basketball and baseball. Herman has more than 230 wins while coaching at Indian Valley High School, Southern Wesleyan University (SC), Abbeville HS (SC), Anderson College (SC).

He was voted coach of the year by his peers in 2005 and 2018, has the most career basketball wins in IVHS history, and led the Braves to a DII – Top 10 AP Ranking in 2018, when they reached as high as third in the polls. Herman coached in five final fours and two state championships between football and basketball while in SC.

“We are very excited to have James Herman as our next head boys basketball coach. He has a passion for teaching the game of basketball and a proven record of developing programs from the youth level to the varsity level. We look forward to his leadership, knowledge and impact on the next chapter of Coshocton Basketball,” said Kevin Yoder, athletic director.

Herman replaces James Helter who resigned. Family is Helter’s number one priority and with this being his daughter’s senior year of high school he felt it was the right time to step down.
