Guthrie has now filled two basketball head coaching jobs without even having to leave the school building.
Earlier in the spring, it was announced that boys head coach Pete Papahronis would be moving over to take over the girls team, and now, Tim Flanigan will be promoted to fill Papahronis' spot.
Flanigan was working as an assistant for the Bluejays' boys team and takes over a squad that has won two state tournaments in the last five seasons.
Guthrie reached state last season and returns several key players off a young roster, including Kai Callins, Jerrick Warren and Bailey Nichols, all of whom started last season.
