A former member of the Mountain Home High School basketball coaching staff has been selected as the new girls’ basketball coach at Russellville High School. Ryan Koerdt was hired after serving as the boys’ coach at White County Central High School in Providence the last seven seasons.
Koerdt says he is looking forward to the move to the Arkansas River Valley for himself and his family.
Koerdt’s daughter Jaidyn is being recruited by multiple Division One schools, after averaging over 19 points, five rebounds and two steals per game as a sophomore this past season.
Koerdt served as the assistant boys’ basketball coach at Mountain Home under current Athletic Director Mitch Huskey from 2006 to 2007. He says he has fond memories of his time with the Bombers, but one moment that sticks out in his mind was the time he had to take over the coaching duties after Huskey was ejected from a home game against Searcy.
Prior to coming to Mountain Home, Koerdt was the head boys’ coach at Emerson. After leaving Mountain Home, he was the head boys’ coach at Sheridan for several years, before heading to White County Central.
Koerdt succeeds Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame member Sherry White, who announced her retirement last month.
