EDMOND — The Edmond Public Schools board of education approved the hiring Tuesday morning of Lenny Hatchett as Edmond Santa Fe’s boys basketball coach and Steven Goss as Edmond North’s boys hoops coach.
Hatchett has been Mount St. Mary’s basketball coach since 2004, and is also the school’s athletic director.
“When you see coach Hatchett in the grocery store and you’ve played for him, you run to him, not to the next aisle,” said Edmond Public Schools athletic director Mike Nunley.
“Every time you talk to somebody about him, they kept saying the same things. ... I think at the end of the day, he brought a lot to the table. Not just X’s and O’s, but his impact on the hallways in his school in all programs.”
Hatchett becomes Edmond Santa Fe’s third-ever boys basketball coach, replacing Shawn Schenk, who resigned last month after taking the Wolves to the Class 6A semifinals, where they lost to eventual state champion Tulsa Union.
Goss just finished his third season as Haskell’s coach and took the school to its third-ever state tournament.
