NORMAN — Rodney Dindy had been contemplating a return to a head coaching job, but hadn't seen the ideal spot pop up.
That changed when the Norman High boys basketball job came open last month.
Once a state champion coach at Midwest City, Dindy will take over the downtrodden Tiger program following his approval by school board members Monday night.
“I've been wanting to find a head coaching job for a minute,” Dindy said. “The main thing was waiting for the right job and right situation. I definitely think Norman is a great place to coach and work. Their tradition in basketball is great in Oklahoma.”
Dindy, 48, replaces Matt Thornton, who stepped down in March after a 3-21 season.
