Nevins, SC Board Reach Agreement Prior to Public Hearing


An agreement reached by the Spring Cove School Board and Central boys’ varsity basketball and assistant baseball coach Reggie Nevins on May 21 forced the cancellation of a public hearing that was scheduled for May 22.

Nevins told the Herald that the two sides agreed not to hold the public hearing, fearing it would upset a lot of people and possibly turn nasty on both sides.

Nevins was unanimously reinstated as varsity assistant baseball coach for the remainder of the season on May 21. Unfortunately, the Scarlet Dragons fell in the opening round of the District 6 Class 3A playoffs.

As coach of Dragon basketball for 27 seasons, Nevins is unsure if he will be on the sidelines for No. 28.

Nevins told the Herald that every coach is under a one-year contract with the district. He said he has received a letter following the season asking whether he plans to return the next season. Usually after signing the letter indicating he plans to return, Nevins is coaching again.

The school district is advertising in this week’s Herald for a head varsity boys’ basketball coach and a varsity assistant baseball coach for 2019-20.

SC Superintendent Dr. Betsy Baker said that all coaching positions open at the end of the season.

Asked if he plans to apply for the positions, Nevins said his future is “still up in the air. I am talking things over with the family.”

Nevins has been around sports much of his life, coaching baseball for 38 years and basketball for 35 years.
