Former HHS boys' basketball coach Tom Brown encourages his team from the sidelines during the 2011 Cabool Holiday Tournament. Brown is seeking enough signatures to place his name on the ballot as an independent candidate in the 8th Congressional District race

Houston High School will soon have a sixth basketball coach in seven years.

The district is seeking a new coach for its varsity boys’ basketball program, according to a posting on the school website. The employment ad was placed Wednesday.

The search for a new coach marks the end of Tom Brown’s one-year tenure with the Tigers. The team finished 4-19 in Brown’s only season.

Brown arrived in Houston three weeks before the 2011-’12 season following the Oct. 10 resignation of Dustin Kirkman. He had previously coached nine seasons at Meadow Heights High School.

The HHS boys’ basketball program has been a turnstile for coaches in recent years. Brown followed Kirkman, Brent Hall, Wayne Jessen and Aaron Griffin on the Tigers’ sidelines.

Houston last won a conference title in 1989 and district championship in 1984.
