Levister take over
’Jacket boys’ hoops

Greenfield High School has filled its boys’ basketball head coaching job with the hiring of Chad Levister.
As first reported in the Weakley County Press Tuesday, GHS Principal Mike Riggs turned to Levister — a longtime friend and fellow graduate of Dresden High School — to replace Pete Angelos.
Angelos resigned three weeks ago to take a similar position at Henry County High School. He’d spent seven seasons at the Yellowjacket helm, compiling a 92-90 record, but was 49-32 the past three years with moderate success against the ‘Big 3’ of District 14A (Humboldt, Lake County and Union City).
The 46-year-old Levister had served as an assistant coach to Westview girls’ skipper Sean Stephenson the past six years, helping the Lady Chargers to three state tournament berths.
He’d recently resigned as Westview’s head baseball coach, having gone 37-68 in four seasons.
