Turner Ashby's next boys basketball coach is coming all the way from Colorado.
TA athletic director John Woodrum said Wednesday that the school had hired Chad Seibert to take over its boys basketball program. Seibert's hire was approved by the Rockingham County School Board Tuesday.
He replaces Jamie Eberly, who resigned last month.
Seibert comes to TA from Boulder High School in Boulder, Colorado, where he was an assistant. Boulder's boys basketball team made its first-ever appearance in the 5-A state title game this season, according to Woodrum.
Woodrum said Seibert is moving to the Shenandoah Valley for family reasons and had contacted several schools in the area, including TA.
"He stumbled upon us at the right time, I guess," Woodrum said. "I think he'll be a good fit here. He's all about the kids."
