Shorewood High School and the Shoreline School District have named George Edwards as their new Varsity Boys Basketball coach. Edwards replaces Corey O’Hayre who resigned in May after two years as the T-Birds Head Coach.
This will be Edwards’ first head basketball assignment. However, he is no stranger to Shorewood, the WesCo Conference or area basketball. Most recently Edwards served as the top assistant at Shorewood for four years under the tutelage of Marv Morris from 2009-2012. He also served five-years as an assistant with the T-Birds from 2001-2006.
Overall, Edwards has over 20 years of coaching experience, 12 of those years in the WesCo Conference.
We are excited to have someone with George’s credentials and coaching experience. He came into the interview process with a plan and an excitement to be the long-term leader of the Shorewood Basketball Program.
George is familiar with Shoreline School District, Shorewood and its programs and procedures.
George is well connected with the area basketball community and we feel this will be an asset as he builds this program.
