G1NBC (Christian County) has learned, through sources, that Hopkinsville head basketball coach, Tim Haworth, is leaving HHS for the head job at the prestigious Louisville Male men’s basketball program. At Hopkinsville High School, Tim Haworth won 80 percent of his games with a record of 200-50, taking the Tigers to the Sweet Sixteen five of the previous seven years. We also believe coach Larry Miller has been tabbed the interim head basketball coach. In joining Louisville Male’s basketball program, Haworth will be leading a basketball program which has won 4 State Championships and has been Runner-up an additional 5 times. Male hasn’t won a State Championship in basketball since the 1975 season, something the program believes it has addressed in hiring Haworth. Louisville Male has boasted such former greats in basketball as Darrell Griffith, Winston Bennett, and Larry O’Bannon.
Larry Miller, pictured to the left, who has been named interim head basketball coach, formerly headed up the Men’s basketball programs at both Louisville Male and Louisville Moore before joining Haworth’s staff in 2015. This past season Miller assisted the girls’ basketball program on which his granddaughter starred at point guard (London Foster). Miller, a veteran coach in his own right, went 75-54 in four seasons at Louisville Male and was an assistant coach at the University of Dayton from 1990-1993. Prior to a stint at Dayton, Miller went 243-219 in a 16 year stint at Louisville Moore Traditional High School. Miller also previously won an Ohio, division I, State Basketball Championship, as the coach at Cincinnati Woodward in 1988. Over what amounts to an illustrious career, Miller has won over 400 games as a head basketball coach. It would appear to this reporter that both of these schools have fared very well in finding men to guide their respective basketball fortunes. That is provided HHS is inclined toward removing the interim tag from in front of Coach Miller’s title of HHS head basketball coach. One of Miller’s most pronounced traits, throughout his coaching career, has been his proficiency with player development, something about which the Tigers were keen to see continued in its basketball program post-Haworth.
Good luck to both gentlemen, from your locally owned, hometown, G1NBC (Christian County).
