Perryton ISD is proud to announce the promotion of Richard North to Head Girls Basketball Coach and Girls Coordinator.  North has coached in the Texas Panhandle for 31 years. His career includes fifteen seasons as a head coach in Spearman (41-19) and Friona (256-131). 

North has been a member of the Perryton High School coaching staff for eleven years and has most recently served as Assistant Girls Basketball Coach under Will McKethan who has accepted a position with 6A Converse-Judson High School.

PISD Athletic Director Dustin Klafka expressed his delight with the selection, “A guy like Richard is a good hire under any circumstances. He’s got veteran experience as a head coach and he’s been extremely successful.  Under the circumstances, with Will’s late resignation, he’s a fantastic choice. Richard North is a guy that’s just good for kids and a great basketball coach.”

North will assume his new role immediately as the ‘Rettes begin preparation for the upcoming school year.
